I lowered the saddle on the Lemond. It made a bigger difference than I thought. It hadn’t occured to me that, since the seat tube is on an angle
, moving the seat up and down also moves it forward and back. The b.17
sits higher from the rails than the stock Bontrager saddle
, so I was too far up, and too far back. I am hoping that’s all there was to my back (and hand) pain.

While I rode, I watched more Star Trek, Charlie X this time.
My new bike is still in the shop… when I called to ask about it, they said I should have it back Monday.
