RidgeRunner Porteur, a set on Flickr.

I promised some photos of the re-cockpitted Miyata, and it was light out when I rode in today. It was a nice misty day by the time I got downtown.  The fog started as I neared the Sound, and I was covered in wet mist by the time I got to work. Another beautiful Seattle commute!

Comments on the setup:

  • I love the way this bike rides, but it’s time to disassemble in anticipation of the forthcoming Soma Grand Randonneur.
  • I may keep the frame, but I have a feeling it won’t get ridden much.
  • The bottom bracket is too high, which pushes the seat too high – too much seatpost showing.
  • I would also put a longer stem on this beast – probably a Nitto Technomics 110.
  • The reach is a bit too short this way.
  • I also won’t do 175mm cranks again. After 170/171s it feels like I’m really moving the legs a lot!
