Gear Talk / brooks c19 vs b17?
« on: December 28, 2021, 03:51:10 pm »
I like my b17except for the wet weather stretch. I like my saddle to stay hard and not sag
because sagging pushes me forward on the saddle.

The c17 seems to narrow. The c19 looks to be a proper width, but it is very rounded and
I worry that that will bother me as I prefer the flat top of a b17. I have seen the the c67, but it looks too wide.

I ride at a middling angle of about 45 degrees I think. Bars even or very slightly above the saddle. My sit bones are about 140mm.

Do any of you have experience with both the b17 and c19 and can you compare them?

Gear Talk / Is a tiagra triple the right choice? Are there other options?
« on: December 28, 2021, 02:15:24 pm »
I don't know of any other triples with integrated shifting. I don't want bar ends. And really I would like at least 105 quality.
Any recommendations?

Gear Talk / Need STRONG 135mm hub for Surly long haul trucker.
« on: December 28, 2021, 02:13:49 pm »
I need a hub that will work on the long haul trucker that can handle a total bike/rider/gear weight of at least 400lbs.

I also need it to work in the extreme cold and I know the free hub on Shimano hubs stops working around 20F.

I am planning on using a tiagra triple with it. 10 speed is fine.

What would you recommend? I know phil wood tops out at only 280lbs.
