    Wtf is going on with that shifter angle?

    Also if your saddle is tilted that much forward, try levelling it, shifting it down and back and working on your core flexibility and you may find it more comfortable.

    The red one looks horrifyingly set up. Maybe put the stand on the other side, too...
  • Always the problem with buying off the internet, you buy a bike that you think you want but in making it fit you it looks like a dogs dinner. And disc breaks on an Aeroad? Perlease.

    Before you start slaging anyones set-up you should take into a account what they ahem it set up like that.
    I have a bad back and that set up is perfect for me and I can manage 21-23mph avg with it too. The discs are much better than rim brakes as anyone knows.

    The stand is a carbon drive side and its been designed to be used on the cassette and there is a non-dive side stand available too.

    Would need to see a pic of you on it, but by the sounds of it you have a fairly upright position, which is ironic for an 'aero' bike. Either way, I can't see how a saddle with that much forward tilt on it would not put any undue stress on your core or back area.

    *Got back issues
    *Buys Aeroad

    No back issues will be helped by that saddle set up... and even if it did, you'll have a raw gooch and your wrists will ache because you're constantly pushing yourself back into the saddle.

    Well it ain't pretty but I'm guessing the guy knows better than you or anybody else if its easier on his back than a conventional set up

    I respectfully disagree, I know best

    That's a nice set up Nickoo - stealth black not my cup of tea, but looks great anyway.

    I'd love to try and set up an Aeroad with TT cockpit for triathlon, but my level of triathlon competence at the moment means a set of tri-bars on a normal road bike will have to suffice for now. Maybe or the first IronMan... :roll:
  • Nice , Are they really any faster than a regular road bike ? I’d like one if they brought the average up a bit

    Depends on your setup - in case that wasn't clear from this discourse.. ;)

    An aero position on a non-aero bike is still likely to be faster than a non-aero position on an aero bike, if that helps..

    What about with a skin suit and aero helmet to pick up a packet of woodbines in mr Patelles cost cutting Multimart ? Could I cut a minute off ?

    It is amusing that he looks like he's blown £150 on a carbon stand to show off a bike that anybody who's been cycling for a while would laugh at. Oh well, it's not hurting anyone.
