Quite an impressive stable you've got there!

What kind of saddle to bar drop is there on the TT bike?
This board and the world in general would be a much nicer place if everyone could just take themselves a little less seriously.

A light bike does replace good fitness.

love all the grey metal.

Are you 7ft tall? How the heck to you transport that TT bike with that seat mast?

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.
