OK only since you asked
No one in my meat space cares out bicycles so I never really talk about it.
I ride everyday to work, never for recreation only to work.
So my bikes are all workhorses




Panaracer T-serve messengers wrapped around Mavic Open Pro



Weird front rings, yes that 53. I tuned the gears for a specific route I take

BTW, don;t put vintage parts on a daily rider

Nice! I demo'ed one of them. A real stable ride. the GS of commuter bikes.
I'm not a big fan of disc brakes on commuters though. I had a BadBoy Ultra that I was ALWAYS adjusting the pads on.

I weight 275, ride in the rain and crap, and can hit 38mph coasting downhill on that beast.

At a loaded weight of close to 325, OVERSIZED discs are the only thing I'll ride.

Good luck getting those working with drop bars.

I gotta say I spend slightly less time futzing with my BB7s than I do my canti brakes. It's still an exercise in frustration most times though.

If you can find an old shop with a pedal fitting system, it'll help. Speedplays pretty much negate any of the other stuff except for where on the shoe where you put the cleat.

Aside from a little adjustment on the mounting points, and some shims, pretty much right in the middle is it:

More upright = more thighs
More 'aero tuck' = more butt

AFA upright in traffic... Mo bettah to be able to see than to go as fast as you can.

Oh, and the more upright yer sitting, the more pressure on yer ass. Make sure iffen yer bolt upright to get a comfy seat!

When I'm fitting people, I get a marker and put a dot in the middle of the metatarsal that attaches the big toe to the rest of yer foot. That's the middle of the ball of yer foot. I line the centerline of the pedal/cleat system to that line.

There're people out there espousing lots of different stuff: pedals all the way to the arch of the foot, etc. I see that like I did Bio-pace... Works for some, not for all.

Supposed to ride again in the morning, I'll slide the cleats all the way inboard to see where I feel the difference.

On the moto, especially offroad, I use my feet a lot to steer, so locking them down is wierd if I can't at least wiggle them a bit.
