Thanks for the heads up.. I'm out
Post edit: cleaned up for content
Did a dirty fit with string and went for a shake down ride to dial it in... ended up dropping the seatpost/ sliding the saddle back.. Couldn't help my self from hitting the same trail in the evening swapping to drops
Attempting a dirty fit with a piece of string to replicate distance between middle of saddle to handle bar... Looking forward to feel the difference
Post ride edit: pretty close although seatpost came down/saddle slid back
Acquired some gum walls.. Feels snappy going back to 28c's on the rear from riding 32c's through winter...
Thanks, got some classic drops with road levers have to sort out... Studying the bdhu thread for inspiration..
Double post Fail
After putting more time on the bike it has revealed to me that it has better use on road.. Not gravel
The recipient of parts swapped over from my steamroller passed down to a Fuji track and now Se Pk ripper.. I would go above 32c but the front fork won't allow it.
I present to you "WabiSabi(one word) Ikigai"
I had a good pedal strike even with 165 cranks.. Probably lower bottom bracket clearance than my other whips.. Not much I want to change.... Long and low. We'll see how long my back can handle it.
