got my Saluki home last night and I took a very slow 15 minute ride,
and a 20 minute ride today. I really can't go much more yet, but
within a few weeks I should be ready to ride, I think. Anyway, after
my ride today I adjusted the saddle to a more comfortable position.
saluki has a little longer reach than my rivendell road, 1/2 inch
before the saddle adjustment and now 1/4 inch, so not a big deal,
and I think my real issue is not reach as much as position over
the pedals, and I think that is pretty much nailed down. The bike
is very comfortable, heavier than my RIv Road, rear rack and heavier
rims and tires I think contribute, but now I have the same fenders
on both so I will have to take the Riv out to see how it is now.
All in all a very nice ride.
Nice to have a very different bike than my rivendell, now to take
the pacer conversion out and see how that stacks up, maybe tomorrow.
