    Oh Catrin. I get sad, too, reading about the bike. Not for the first time I wish I were a couple of inches taller. I'm all for donating things to charity, but not this. Have you contacted Gunnar? I'm...

    I'm sorry I meant to answer this sooner. Briefly, we played around with the stems. He wanted to try an adjustable one, but realized he didn't have any. So I'll go back next week and finish up. Since...

    Okay, a few thoughts. I wanted to put a grab bar in the shower both for me, if needed, and for when/if my mother visits. It seemed the tub was getting very crowded with shelves and little hooks for...

    Ah see. I've done lots of home remodeling lately, and still have more to go. Would you like to see pictures of my new roof?

    As you've probably realized, it's hard to use a grab bar as a towel...
  5. Oh, no no. I'm talking to exactly the right...

    Oh, no no. I'm talking to exactly the right people :D I wanted reassurance, people telling me what I want to hear, not some sort of common sense rationalization. So thanks!
  6. This is somewhat normal behavior, right?

    I took my new Specialized Vita back to the shop today for our initial fitting. I asked if I could also bring along my Dolce which I bought a couple of years ago at a different shop. Sure, no problem,...

    Thanks! I have a cart going at TE so those reflectors just might work.

    I was trying to work around my neighbor's car and still get some of the greenery in the shot. It was a little distracting.
  9. STOP! I'm not sure if I'm laughing or crying. But...

    STOP! I'm not sure if I'm laughing or crying. But I did find lots of stickers and decals at Cafepress. Or I can go to a craft store and buy lots of little ones and stick them all over ;)

    Thanks - it's fun to share. I already saw the aqua grips :D Maybe a matching bottle cage?

    And I need to find a little black cat sticker. The little guy in my avatar went to the bridge a few weeks...
  11. The silvery one on the right is actually the...

    The silvery one on the right is actually the thumb shifter. Is that what you're looking at? They're SRAM, and slightly more awkward than the Shimano trigger shifters. The brake levers are on the...

    Geez you're fast. I was experimenting. It's been fixed.
  13. Okay. This is "as-is" from the shop. I want to...

    Okay. This is "as-is" from the shop. I want to reduce the red a bit, replace the grips and that one red spacer.
  14. Well thanks for asking! I will try to post later...

    Well thanks for asking! I will try to post later today. Stay tuned...
  15. I still haven't been out on my new bike, but I've...

    I still haven't been out on my new bike, but I've been getting very good at changing stems on the Dolce. I tried a longer stem with a steeper angle. I think this may work. The reach is, of course, a...

    I now have a nice collection of stems. I'll experiment. I have arthritis and a pinched nerve in my neck, so I'm very sensitive to any discomfort in that area.

    It's snowing again.

    Another...
  17. Yes, sorry for the confusion. I'm talking about...

    Yes, sorry for the confusion. I'm talking about the Dolce. The stem is as short and steep as they come. It has the short and shallow bars. As a matter of fact, when I'm in the drops, the reach feels...
  18. Muirenn - are you the one who has mentioned...

    Muirenn - are you the one who has mentioned zero-offset seatposts? I'm thinking of getting one for my Dolce in a last attempt at a comfortable fit. I feel the reach is just a bit too long, and I'm...
  19. Specialized Vita. I had been riding a Sirrus for...

    Specialized Vita. I had been riding a Sirrus for years which became my almost-everything bike. Shortly after getting a drop bar bike (a Dolce), the Sirrus was stolen. I rode the Dolce for a while,...
  20. I'm going to pick up my new bike today. So what's with the white stuff?

    I woke up all excited, came downstairs, and....snow? Really? I like the seasons. I like winter. But not at the end of April. My poor daffodils. They struggle anyway with the limited sun exposure....

    My knees do point slightly towards each other. I could never be a yoga model because I'm just not linear. Knees point in, calves bend out. Even when the knee joint is fully straightened, my legs...

    I'm so sorry Crankin. Please take care.

    I'm so sorry Crankin. Please take care.
  23. So since yesterday I've ridden two carbon bikes,...

    So since yesterday I've ridden two carbon bikes, different brands, and I think I've found a little problem. The top tubes on both were wider than on the similar aluminum models. My inner thighs kept...

    Thanks for the info. I was only kind of kidding about the pothole danger. It's just I hear that it's smooth, but stiff. My engineering brain is trying to get around that. So the vibrations get...
  25. What are the disadvantages to a carbon frame?

    Or, in other words, do I need a carbon bike? I never really considered carbon, but I've just seen two bikes that have me thinking. I know they're light and smooth. Are they strong, too? I have this...
