    Can't even see the pin marks today. Guess I'm lucky! I'd like to say I fell because the pins hit me. But I literally tripped over my own bike. :)

    But I think I can one-up you on that spill. I get the sheer idiocy award.

    The soles of my road shoes are much thinner than my mountainbike shoes, so the distance from the center of the bottom bracket to the top of the saddle is higher on the mountainbike. Also, the Oura is...

    Oh yeah, four bikes and I've lowered and raised the handlebars often. The difference with road bikes is you don't have radically different handlebars if you change them (which I don't, I like the...

    I actually like riding in the rain, always have. My only issue is increased risk from traffic on-road. And possible falling tree limbs and lightening offroad. We have a lot of both.

    I thought you'd already lowered the saddle. :) Yes, it does sound like it's too high.

    LOL on the shoes!

    The specs for the saddle are listed under your bike on the website, and it says 155. It sounds like the cutout is causing problems. You need to figure out where the point of...

    Read this and measure your sitbones. Typically, chafing caused by the neck of the saddle results in the area between thigh and buttock being chafed. I think perhaps the cutout edges caused problems....
