I am quite interested in the Sitero. My main question is, will the Sitero enable me to have a more forward position? I have tried looking at the pictures to get a sense of where the rails are and so on but I just can't tell.
I have been considering buying the 37.5mm setback post in order to get more forward but it would be nice if I could achieve the same thing with the Sitero.
And on another sidenote, I just finnished my 2013 Shiv. But im having probklems with the di2 FD cable.
I cant seem to get it long enough to reach the FD when the shrink hose is on! How did you all do it??
I have tried with 3 different types.
Worked perfectly for the 3 x 70.3's I've done so far.
I did actually also tape some powerbar ride shots to the top of the aero stem and was able to access these whilst in aero which was handy.
Not the most ideal looker or perhaps aero solution but prob the handiest.
Regarding drinks - I had 1 bottle cage mounted, full Fuelselage and I refilled Fuelselage in the hotter of the 70.3's for more hydration also.
Toying with idea of torpedo mount for this season as an alternative.
Hope this helps.
Fuelcell is Specialized aero storage mounts using cage bolts though so no bottle on frame.
Its the triangular storage device that the pro's trialled in Kona - us non pro's should have it this June hopefully.
Google it for pic's.
not sure how practical reaching down to it for gels will be but certainly a good spares/tools solution.
We sit on our ischial tuberosities (sit bones) when we ride in more upright positions (like a road bike) but as we get into more aggressive positions we roll our hips forward and support ourselves on our pubic rami. When we do this, the area in which we support ourselves on the saddle narrows itself. So your sit bones could be 127mm apart, but your pubic rami is 110mm apart, meaning you need a narrower area when you roll forward to support yourself.
Most saddles don't allow for this because they are too narrow or too wide in the front. Because of the shape of the sitero, it allows the rider to find their "sit zone" and roll forward onto their pubic rami and open up the hips more, to get lower in the front and a more forward position.
I've been using this for the last two months. It's very simple and practical to reach down and grab a gel or bar. More practical then trying to rip a gel off that is taped onto your top tube anyway
I am getting ready to do another custom paint job, this time on my Shiv Tri. Do you know what the nominal clearance is between the seat post and frame? Also the nominal clearance between the frame and fork. I know some owners have mentioned that the fork can rub at full turn on the frame, so I definitely want to be very cautious in these areas.
I am looking to put Di2 Dura Ace 9070 on my shiv (2012 Comp) and I wanted to post the list of parts to make sure I had everything I needed. I'm looking to have a dual shifter setup. My aero bar setup is profile design carbon x 1.5. Any other advice or experience in doing this install would be welcome.
Cables EW-SD50 total of 8? (4 in the cockpit, 1 for connecting the junction boxes, 1 for the battery, 1 for the front derailleur and 1 for the rear derailleur) Not sure of the lengths needed.
Grommets (not sure whether oval or round)
brake/ shifters ST 9071
TT Shifters SW R671
5 port Junction box EW90-F
Junction Internal Rear SMHC41
Battery holder SM-BMR1 small
Rear Derailleur RD-9070-SS
Front Derailleur FD-9070-F
Yesterday I rode the medium as well as the large. While technically I fit in the bottom 1/3rd of the large sizing chart there was no question the medium was for me (and I'm 5-11) -also could not believe how comfortable the Shiv was.
BTW the bike i was looking at was a very clean 2012 "Rival" size Large and sold for $2278.
you only need 4 cables, as the ST-9071 and the SW-R671 already have cables permanently attached to them.
Why won't you use the new internal battery? It fits just fine into the Shiv seatpost.
Oh, and no need for grommets IMO.
