I’ve had my chef, my friend Zoë and the bike shop guru fit me on the bike. All three were unanimous with what needed to be done. Of course, I let the bike shop make the final decision – seemed like good idea when chainsaws are to be involved.
- The seat was too high – we lowered it a few millimeters and it feels perfect now.
- The stem is too short – a new one is on the way.
- The handlebars are too high – once the stem arrives Chef Michael is gonna chainsaw the neck thing down and lower it.
- The color is totally wrong – for proper form the bike needs to be hot pink and black. I’ve got spray paint and I’m not afraid to use it.
I’m blessed with short legs and a long torso – so I give the illusion of having my seat too low, when really, it’s just my deformed body. Go reckon that.
Now, I’m off to get new shoes and see what I can do about this running problem. Anyone ever wear the Newton shoe?
