Ism PN 3.0 saddle
7cm behind bb
You would be on the very high end range (specifically reach) of a large. You could only gain 4 mm of more reach on a large, but you already have a lot of reach and don't necessarily need more.
The numbers are pointing me towards an XL but that just seems like so much bike for someone at your size. I would be concerned about standover height with an XL. Any chance you can get your hands on a large or XL before making the decision?
get comfortable being uncomfortable
Where you are measuring your reach from? You said you moved our saddle back which added more. Reason I ask is that the SC fit chart is based off BB to mid pad. Are you measuring reach from saddle nose to pads?
Also... why did you move your seat back?
get comfortable being uncomfortable
I am measuring my reach the appropriate way from the bottom bracket to the center of the pads which is 580.
what I was trying to convey was that I moved my seat back several more centimeters and that intern stressed me out a little more.I had the notion that I was going to move the cockpit back the appropriate distance when I move the seat back however it actually made things more comfortable so for the time being at least I'm leaving it alone but my reach has been measured appropriately. As for moving my seat back over the past couple years my seat has been moving further forward and I feel like the wrong muscles are being engaged and it's screwing with my run to some degree. After a brief session with Josh Beck we made the decision to move my seat back at least for several months and see how it felt.
Quick question. I just bought a new 2017 Speed Concept 7.0. Will I have trouble putting a new cockpit on this bike? The headset looks all integrated and there is currently no traditional spacers or top cap with a bolt. Is there anything I have to keep in mind when I change out bars? I am thinking of going with Tririg Alpha X.
Thoughts, or should I just get the new bearings done as a matter of course?
Second q: looking at changing my tape over to shrink wrap like one would use on fishing rods. Iâ€™ve done this with rowing oar handles with carbon handles, but am a bit more leery of doing this on the bike.
Would judicious application of a heat gun be a problem with the carbon on the SC aero bars?
A mega exo chainset may not work. IIRC there are some of them that need a completely different BB, but a mechanic will be able to spot those. Itâ€™s been a while since Iâ€™ve seen anyone using them. Iâ€™d go with new bearings as youâ€™re playing around there, but thatâ€™s me.
GXP will work of course , with new bearings.
Developing aero, fit and other fun stuff at Red is Faster
I have 2 holders in my frame but they create a lot of drag and reaching down to get them I come out of aero position, looking for rear holder behind the seat or something for the aero bar? I got a 2018 sc and then whole front end is integrated and I am unsure if anything fits there.
For the back I just use an old Profile Design holder that is zip tied under the seat, high and tight. It's about the complete opposite of the front since it's dirt cheap and kind of clugy (is that a word?). But it works well for me. I've done a few HIMs and an IM with this setup and it works well. No need for more than this since there are so many water stops on course. For training I put regular cheap aluminum holders on the triangle.
Youâ€™d need a SC stem, riser, basebar, and extension. Thereâ€™s also hardware (bolts, etc) that would prob be best ordered through dealer. But the big items should be somewhat easy to source on your own.
Then building it up isnâ€™t that bad if youâ€™re comfortable wrenching.
