    Very good. I’ve always appreciated curved seat stays.

    The little wedge is installed in the levers. Mostly wanted to know if I correctly understood the intent of this thread.

    Also, spacer stack stays.

    Nope nope nope. And with ‘suspension’ so that vise-grip seatpost clamp is getting wangled about throughout the ride. Shocking.

    It’s like a little kid learning to dive into the pool. “Did you see me dive?” “Yup, you totally did it.”

    I think the most recent is most good, and you’re wild with the left bar end shifting the rear derailleur. Aint nobody gonna tell you how to do bikes.

    One observation from experience, is that BDHU on compact drops often shortens the stem clamp to hoods distance, necessitating a longer stem. Which, to my eye, often makes the bike look better anyway.

    You’re spot on. The flats I occasionally swap on and off the bike have a very different stack height than the SPDs/shoes combo I use. If for more than a ride to the park, I need to adjust saddle height. The fore-aft has never been an issue for me, but height for sure. Cleat position, combined height of pedal/cleat/shoe, type of flat pedals, thickness of shoe sole, etc., all contribute.

    I tend to position myself based on what ‘feels right’ for pedaling. Seems to work OK for me.

    Thanks for the kind words, all. It’s a good bike to use for going on bike rides.

    Shifters are Shimano 7sp, moving that LX derailleur back and forth across a 12-30 7sp cassette.
