As the title says, looking for a 143mm power saddle in good condition. Odd marks are OK but not looking for a beater.
Edit: Be careful clamping the top tube. Seatpost is a better idea.
Oh yeah, it was on fixed.
@tomasito ride here.
Total time, time on the bike was 6hrs 47mins. It's my fastest 200k.
I'm having to do less rides up Bristol this year to try and save some cash. I'll only go up when I can car share and split the Travelodge.
Good luck for the weekend.
Did my first DIY today. 200k in 7hrs and 5 mins. That's 3 months into my RRtY.
I've done Audaxs on all sorts over the years and there is a magical thing called a weather forecast.
I should say first 100 on this bike...
If it is raining non stop I'll use another bike. Bullhorns work the best for climbing and aerobars are the best for the flat sections. I find aerobars are the most comfortable position for distance riding.
I think what people think of Audax bikes are dated. Ride something fast and you get more time to eat cake.
New Audax bike. Did my first 100miler yesterday. Waiting on parts to build up a new wheelset.
I'm not a big fan of Max tubing but that Roberts is lovely.
What's the frame? Guessing you Audax?
Nice setup, any pictures from the side?
New project will be turning this into a fixed long distance TT bike.
Will be build with 7710 stages, DA brake lever and some Mack/light bicycle wheels.
Fair enough. Have you tried ones without padding? Although not perfect my forma is the best saddle I've found.
There are some on eBay now.
That's what I've got on my day one.
I ride a 40c, rides fine but the wheels are slow to spin up. The same with geared bikes I guess.
Looking for a TT frameset. Must have horizontal dropouts as I will be running fixed. Must be in OK condition.
New Mack hubs 24/20h . £130 posted
I've got these in 47 (wide) and they are the only shoes not to hurt my feet on 300k+ rides.
Isn't that a cotic fork?
73" I don't bother changing it out for different rides, just suck it up.
Edit: It helps the bike is 6.9kg and will be down to 6.5kg with my new wheelset. My commuting bike is also fixed and weights 12kg, much harder to drag up hills at the end of a long day.
