New inFormation.

I've had the Scott CR1 about 1 year now. It's been good to me, but 6000+ miles later, besides the snapped SRAM 1090R Chain and worn out tires, the saddle is the weak link. It's never been comfortable really, so today after Lunch I headed over to the bike shop for a butt fitting. They make you sit on a board covered in what looks like cake icing under a sheet of clear plastic. The impression that's left is like a walk-of-fame impression for butt cheeks. The width is then measured, color coded and matched to a saddle. Anyway, I now have the new Bontrager inForm RL and matching PRO handlebar tape.

I'll put them on this evening and if the weather gets better tomorrow will be their maiden voyage. Wish me luck.

That's a sweet looking seat! If seats could kill, that one would!

Hopefully it doesn't kill my ass bro. Long ride tomorrow will tell the tale.
