    Shimano SPD-SL pedals

    I think the yellow cleats have 6 deg of float and actually the pedals have 6 deg of float built in them which would give you 12 deg with yellow and 6 with red.

    Bombproof rims??

    I have put 1000 miles on a set of Mavic (Ksyrium SL) that I bought used with about 500 miles on them, so far they are still true(knocking on wood as I type:D ) and I ride on some very crapy roads at times and I weight in at 190 lbs. Not saying they are for everyone but so far mine seem to be...

    Almost got hurt today...almost...crazy story

    No the 2 I am talking about are the Western Reserve Greenway which goes from Champion to Ashtabula, you have to get on RT45 for 6 miles of it, and the other is the Mill Creek Metroparks trail. both are well maintained, the Mill Creek is usally pretty busy with walkers.

    Saddle for men with prostate issues...

    It can get expensive trying different saddles:eek: like everyone else said you will have to find one you like by trial and error, to answer your question I ended up with a specialized alias 143 and as I said I am pretty happy with it. One thing about trying different saddles I looked on ebay...

    Saddle for men with prostate issues...

    I think all the Specialized Saddles come in 3 different widths, maybe you don't have the correct width? Maybe you do, I tried the Specialized Toupe first and it was too hard for me:eek:

There is also one house where about seven or eight dogs come running out but...

    Headstem Angles

    Specialized makes stems with adjustable angles, I have a 120mm and 100mm if you are interested. I fit right in the middle at 110mm.

    Help With Stem Angle

    I happen to be at my desk and did a quick draw in cad, a 90mm 10 deg rise would be about 7/16" lower and about 1/8" shorter than what you have now, why are you changing if you want to get as close as you can to what you have now? Hope this helps!
