    Echoing the above, get the back end sorted before the front: as well as being decent seatposts, these are cheap, available in black or silver and a wide range of sizes.

    Is the saddle uncomfortable or just the wrong colour? A cut-out is beneficial to women as well as men: a friend (woman) has a Flite Trans Am she would sell, or there's a Brooks Cambium Carved available in the classifieds at the moment [cough].

    SRAM levers have reach adjustment and following Rodolfo's advice would help too. Zipp make short reach bars if you can't get there with a sensible stem.

    Have a play around with this: assuming you have a 10mm under the stem, then a 17° stem would reduce the reach by 9mm and raise it by 15mm.

    Coloured saddles rarely work IMHO and you won't see it when you're riding. All black everything then make a splash with the handlebar tape (but I'd rather have "proper" tape, leather).

    Don't be so wet.

    If you're going to collapse into a passive - aggressive heap every time someone disagrees with you, then you might as well turn the lights off now.

    Getting in on the joke, fighting back or simply ignoring the haterz are all options.

    Princess Diana eyes and a tremulous sigh shouldn't be.

    Rhode-Saint-Genèse is nice (posh) but out of town.

    Saint Gilles is bohemian (hipster) and central.

    Ixelles is central (skanky) and central.

    Toe-curlingly good hash (and suicide bombers) around the Gare Du Midi .

    Rick's Cafe on the Ave. Louise is the ex-pat (racist) haunt of choice.

    Having said that the rule of thumb I use, is tyre width plus 10mm: I'd want 48mm guards with your tyres or only fit 32 mm tyres under the PDW.

    I make the internal width 42mm.

    Condor might still have some shop-soiled and discounted City left.
