Gear Talk / Brooks saddle modification
« on: December 26, 2009, 07:03:06 pm »
There is a company that modifies Brooks saddles by cutting a hole lengthwise in the saddle under ones perinium.
I am interested in checking into this to see if this would relieve the soreness I get after 60 miles or so.
If anybody can give me an internet site or address I would appreciate it.

Gear Talk / Rollers and trainers
« on: December 02, 2007, 12:43:54 am »

Rollers or a trainer?  After purchasing a Volpe this last May I've ridden 1,600+ miles and would like to continue to use the bike during the worst of the winter days. Being unfamilier with either of the above I thought I'd ask people who have used them.

Gear Talk / Best touring bike under $1,000

Bianchi Volpe, Novara Randonee, and the Surly Long Hual Trucker are my current considerations.  I intend to use the bike for commuting and randoneuring. I like the idea of self supported weekend or even weeklong trips.  Sizing is confusing, I'm currently riding a bike with a stand over of 35 and 3/4 inches (90.8 mm). It's tight, though I can just flex my knees, I bought this Puch ten speed at a flea market just to have something to ride after a 35 year hiatus.
