Installed a Selle Italia SLR Gel Flow on the bike yesterday so today is test time. Cruised from Vajont down to Vivaro on the lovely arrow-straight, slightly downhill highway. The new saddle felt great, reach to the bars was just right, and even the new front bearings seemed smoother ;-) At Vivaro I headed west across the barren Magredi della Cellina and soon arrived in San Foca. From here a short flat spin to Sedrano, where I turned north on the main road to San Martino. Here I took a bumpy shortcut along an irrigation canal, then the main road toward Aviano. I turned north at Via Wassermann to Marsure and headed uphill toward home. Decided on the climb home I'll need to scoot the seat back a few mm. Also I'm not gonna cut the seat mast- it's perfect as is. What are the odds someone's custom-built bike from Italian E-bay fits me perfectly? We'll find out for sure in the mountains in the months ahead.
