I useta get old fogeys in lookin for the biggest thing they could find for their bikes. I never could get it thru their heads that bigger ain't better 'cause all you do is sit where yer sitbones hit anyway. Oh well.

Was gonna ride today but came home from work(sucks) at 1400 and the couch monster almost got me. Stick Me and I went to the gym and I feel much better. Riding tomorrow.

I understand, it was meant as a joke. I have a small thin seat that so far I really like. I am sure that will change.

Sorry mang. Sarcasm don't come thru very well

I'm riding an Aireone. S'OK. I haven't found the 'perfect' saddle yet, so I keep trying. Closest hadta be the Turbomatic series, but they stopped making em. Pro Team Indurains were close behind it. AFter that, Flite Gels were what I rode for lotsa years with great comfort.

I wanna try an Aliante, but don't particularly wanna pay for it. Anyone wanna swap for a bit?

Stick's bike came with an old Turbo. Its white. Anyone interested? Its both heavy and tough.

Speaking of couch monsters...

Mine got me just now. Getting up at 0430 to go to work really, really, really sucks misery goats. I can't go to bed early enough to get a full night's rest, so am dog tired when I come home. That means even tho I KNOW I need to go for a ride, I just don't farging feel like it.

Oh well. I'll be off the morning shift soon!

What are you doing for your swim/run workout? You can PM me rather than post if you want. Just curious. My YMCA schedule, I will have to run and then swim because of pool hours and the schedule I am trying to work on .

That bike has some big A$$ tires? You probably get a good workout just turning it over in normal conditions, let alone snow.

My B-17 broke in quickly by giving the neet's foot oil treatment. Brooks are comfy

My latest rides.
Picked up the Buenos Aries last week. Only 25 miles so far, but a sweet 25 it's very smooth. I hope to put some more on this weekend

The fixie was just something to do & will probably be put up for sale next week. I got it as a zebrakenko lightning. It's a nice steel frame with decent suntour drop outs. Freshly powder coated now
