    If you can ride 20-30 solid miles, with zero pain (especially in or around any contact areas: feet, ass, hands), then ride it however you want, at whatever angles you want, with whatever components you want.

    "If you can ride your bike 29 miles and have no visible discomfort your bike fit is perfect" -dr. Josh

    Thanks dr josh, tell us more

    Well, for one thing, if you can see your own discomfort after riding 29 miles, you might have more issues with your bike than can be solved by a proper fitting.

    @maldoror -- The previous five posts demonstrate perfectly how pdxportlandfixed rolls: Derp.

    Really I was commenting on the saddle. No saddle should look like that.

    2nd, stem length. Why u ride an <80mm stem?

    It's just what I've always used through multiple bikes.

    I know it's probably maddening to see someone make so many mistakes, but I've always just loved to ride and it's never felt like a struggle. It was my dream to own a frame I thought was beautiful, so I slowly saved enough to get it. It's been a slow process building around it, and admittedly I'm nowhere near finished or content with the current state. Hope to see you guys around, and maybe learn a thing or two.

    That saddle's pretty much fine.
    I do a little forward tilt on both my race bikes because it gives me the ability to leverage my ass on the back of the saddle for seated efforts.
    It's illegal in USAC but I'm bad to the bone so I don't care. Looks like you are too. I like that about you.
    I also like Josh's fit recommendations.

    Nice Easter egg basket sir
  • McRussellPantsMcRussellPants Riding Level: 682
    Well I'm the one with the egg on a spoon in my mouth on that bike thing.

    Easter alley cat we did back home, had to run/ride 20ft doing the spoon egg thing to finish. Good times.

    Rode that thing back and forth to Camas yesterday. Ended up at velocult and signed up for mtb Sandy ridge thing today.
