Which one fits you better? The short and stocky C'dale (50cm) or the Fixy (52-54 cm).

RATS! WTB 700x37c too big for the 1997 steel Fuji Roubaix - going to Schwabe Marathon Plus 700x28c.

Terry Beetle saddle makes Cannondale F700 muy butt happy!

hmai18: that looks just like my 1976 Sentinal except it was chrome with red. *lust*

They're both pretty close in fit. I was professionally fitted on the Cannondale when I moved all of the parts over from an older 54cm frame that was too big.

The fit on the fixie could probably be tweaked a bit more, but I'm pretty comfortable on it in most positions. The only pain is that my favorite position on the road bike isn't as comfortable on the fixie because I don't have the shifters to grasp.

Which are you?
post #58 of 3552
I prefer a bicycle without shocks. IMHO they waste a lot of verticle energy that could be used for horizontal (moving forward) energy. I also ride 100% on public roads not off-road. I had a MT. BIKE for about 1 week and returned that to Sports Authority under their return policy. I bought a TREK FX3. I am much happier with this bicycle.

Less talk, more bicycle pr0n!
Just kidding. I parked next to one of these on campus the other day and now I wants it!



Also, any recommendations for a saddle for an mtb that's used 75% on the street? I was looking at this one Any others in that price range?

Since I was still mad at myself for not getting a ride in yesterday, I got my errornet procrastinating out of the way early and by 0800 was kitted out and taking down my Fuji Roubaix. Back tire was flat and wouldn't hold air, so off it came and shortly after that the tube was out for inspection. Wheel had one of those cheap rubber bands on it, soon found where that had failed and a spoke cut the tube. Tried to readjust the cut away from the spoke well, re-assembled and inflated. Back on the bike, it popped while I was filling the front tire. Velox tape was ordered but not here yet, so the Fuji went back up and the F700 Cannondale came down. Different shoes, tires up to 60PSI, HeadShok locked out, and, voila; instant alternate road bike.

Now I'm riding on the clock until I get back in shape. Started at 40 minutes, then 60, and today was for 80. Suburban streets chosen for interest and skills testing to county park with miles of paved bike paths. Park expanded the bike trails since I stopped riding years ago and today I managed to find myself seven miles from home in a hurry. But it's not crowded on a weekday morning, mostly secluded mix of meadows, woods, and lakes. Lots of wildlife. Besides the usual rodents and birds, I saw a nice big wild turkey hen and a mink heading off with a lesser rodent in its mouth for breakfast. Very pleasant.

Home in 85 minutes; 20 oz bottle of OP's energy drink (2/3 strength lemonade mix with salt substitute) empty. Cool down, hit the shower and ready for the day.

I could not see the price on the Big Earl, but I'm really happy with this new saddle (and the price was right): Terry Beetle Bike Saddle (For Men) - Save 36%
