Current Stage Info:

Decided I like this bike too much to be an errand bike. It's my go-to bike for the most part. I ride it more than my Tarmac simply because I enjoy it more.

Thanks! No issues with the seatpost at all, although I do plan to change it to a Thomson eventually.

how many miles on the TGs? I have some 28s collecting dust and could use the big ones for polo

ddeadserious says:

I've got less than 100 miles on them, probably half that honestly. How many miles you have on the 28s?

I'm perfectly fine on this saddle without shorts. It was my primary saddle on my other bike before I bought my first pair of shorts. Your butt may or may not disagree!

looks really comfy for short rides. gumwalls are sorta hard for my eyes to adjust to with the green but i've yet to get a flat on my TGs. 2012 goal: keep this frame a year :D

Haha nice man! I'm still not 100% sure on the tan walls, but I love the way this bike rides with them. If I decide I don't like them, I'll just sell them and get some all black tires, no big.
