Quite an impressive stable you've got there!

What kind of saddle to bar drop is there on the TT bike?

the extended seat tube has caused one or 2 small transport problems thats why theres another one being made up without it :D

bar drop on the TT'er is 21cm if i remember correctly but that might be coming up a little, playing with power vs aero at the moment.

yep good being 6'7, i get more TI for my money than little guys


:wink:

Even at 6'7", that's an impressive bar drop on the road bikes. How much?

never measured it, but working at it from a strange angle BBdrop is 7cm cnt of bar above front hub is 65 and saddle above BB is 90cm
so bar above BB is 72cm saddle is 90cm but at a 73.5degrees so comes out at 3.7cm lower so top of saddle above bb vertically is 86.3, 86.3-72=14.3

im sure someone good with maths could work it out a bit better


Thanks, it looks at least that!

Nice array of Ti. I have a Z3 which I adore but I also love my Legend: the ride of good Ti is a joy.
