Current Stage Info:

My setup to bike to Ottawa to visit a friend. I spent 11 hours on the saddle one day, and 10.5 the next. It was a good time (besides the pouring rain, and lack of shoulder on the roads).

Forgot to ask, do you really like this frame? Stiff? Heavy? Toe overlap? Geometry?

Ozren0 says:

The frame is great, my only issues are no bottle cage bosses, and that I bought a seat post that was too short, so my BB-Saddle was a bit too low. It's a good, cheap-ish frame.

What's up with that ratio?

Ozren0 says:

2.39 Ratio is 28km/hr at a cadence of 90, or 31km/hr at a cadence of 100. I average between 30 and 32km/hr as I ride, so I have no need for a higher gear ratio.

Ozren0 says:

If I had a higher gear ratio, yes, I could go faster instantaneously, but I'd rather have a gear set up for the speed I go 99% of the time than for 1% of the time.

how long you can stay at 90?

Ozren0 says:

When I'm riding, I'm usually at a cadence between 90 and 110. Obviously if I'm going downhill, my cadence is higher.
