    My right hip is higher than my left. I push down into right to make them even. Don't have to do it all the time, the joint is mobile. It does help. Also have a spacer in the right cleat. It helps....

    Just the left? Is it on the inside of the leg? Is the nose of the saddle directly over the TT? Or is it canted slightly to the right? Can be hard to tell if the saddle has any pin-striping on it, and...

    Chafing is usually at the back upper part of the leg in the crease between thigh and buttock. A lot of people have issues with that (I don't, lucky, I guess!). Usually fixed by having a more 'T'...

    Actually, there are a few TE'ers who use the Affinity. You could probably sell it on here if you decide to switch.



    I was thinking that, too.

    Looking at your setup, you have at least 3 cm of saddle to bars drop. That means you are putting more pressure on soft tissues than some. A lot of women tend toward less saddle to bar drop due to...

    You might want to look into a saddle with a cutout. I like Specialized. They are essentially unisex, just go by width. I like the Romins for the extra large cutouts. They are quite minimal for...

    Yep. Best thing to do is not worry about it too much and perhaps take up walking as a hobby, not as exercise. Or maybe light hiking/sightseeing by foot. :)

    Everyone thinks I'm 5'10" or so due to my proportions, but I'm only 5'7". So, yeah. Know what you mean.

    It would be funny if you ended up on the Civilian! Love that bike.

    Edit: Ha! I knew I...

    :) I would have to call the Romin Comp a cross between the Romin and the Ruby. Shrug. Probably won't have one in stock, though.

    I'm assuming you are an experienced cyclist? If you do get the...

    Did you end up with a zero-offset seat post? The one pictured isn't. Just curious. :)

    The Romin Comp is definitely nothing like the squishy saddle you are picturing. It's very firm. Just slightly more padded than the Ruby. (Or even the same as the Ruby, they change the design every...

    Wonderful!

    I'm curious how it compares to the Madone you rented. Is it basically the same bike?

    Is this your Pro Logo?

    Looks like it's 135 X 280.

    The first female pro logo looks a little less pear-shaped, so less likely to cause chafing. At least from the picture.

    This is the version...

    Measuring a saddle gets a much smaller number than just looking at the manufacturer's measurements. It will give you a very inaccurate picture of what you need. What is your outside distance of your...

    Fredettes? I always thought they were 'Wilma's.'

    When I can't carry enough water, I put one of those small juice bottles in my jersey pocket. Something like This. They fit perfectly. You can put...

    Actually, looking at the Civilian again I realize the HT is 12.5 on the 535 TT. That's doable. STA is 74. Okay. That would actually work. Not sure what I was looking at before, though. (Maybe it...

    I'll try it sometime. :) So far I've just done the math in my head with the exception of that trigonometric eq posted on that thread I like so much. (Only did that once).

    That's a hot bike!

    And,...you NAMED it?

    I'm going to chuckle all day over this. (Though I did call the Pina the 'Beast' for the first couple of months I had it. Fitting).

    Seat tube is a huge deal with me, too. MY STA is about 73.8, if memory serves. That's a problem, I need a 0 offset seat post, so could use it even steeper, but if I go to a larger bike, then the ST...

    The 52 has a HT of 13, but a TT of 550. That's pretty darn aggressive. For comparison, my (race) road bike has a 13 HT and a 535 TT. 12 HT would be super aggressive, and anything lower just...

    Belgian Style Cycling Cap

    Does anyone know if the size chart for this cap is accurate? My head is approx 22 inches for 56 cm's. So it says I'd wear a s/m, not a l/xl. But I don't really have a small head!

    It didn't happen, but then I ended up injured. In fact, it was on the 1st of December, 2012. So 3 days before the above post. This could work unless I'm in school. (I'm undecided about next semester,...
