Today I had a little more time to get acquainted with my new bike. I rode 27 miles over familiar roads and liked the way the Raleigh felt on the short hills I had to climb. I switched over to the Easton EA70 wheelset today, and that’s a big step closer to getting the bike set up the way I want. But some fine-tuning remains. During the ride I stopped twice to play with saddle height and handlebar tilt. And I don’t know if I can live with that saddle no matter how it’s positioned. The plan for tomorrow is to ride 2-3 hours and continue to refine the fit, swapping saddles with the Giant OCR1 if necessary. After the ride it’s off to Downer Avenue to watch the pros in the Tour of America’s Dairyland.
