He he - I was reading that canti thread with a LOT of interest
Just in case anyone is still interested...
MASI Speciale CX. Stock saddle was pretty OK (well, for the 20 mins I was on it) but meh, had a Brooks B.17 narrow for it. Swapped the Ritchey SpeedMax lego bricks for Schwalbe Duranos. Will think about pedal choices. Stem is currently 'up'. Will also try it down. Perhaps look at a shorter one - feels OK at present.
The roadie wasn't getting used (much). Thinking about the type of riding I do now, and what I think I'll do in the future, something a bit more upright that has lots of gears, can do long distances and can carry a lot of (girls') stuff was what I was thinking. I wasn't joking before - I LOVE the Salsas. A casseroll would've been awesome. I've also lusted after many a LHT, and haven't really looked at CrossChecks much, but know what they're about.
But then, Paul at velo did me a deal that I just couldn't refuse.
