After about a month of on and off development I am proud to say that
Nope, not exercising but getting measurements so that the next bike I get it will actually fit nicely and I be comfortable on long rides. Thanks to the wonderful fit calculator from Competitive Cyclist and my wife's eagle eye we took some measurements this morning for the future bike project.
Competitive Cyclist has three different types of fits in their calculator. One for each style of riding ranging from the racer to the long distance comfort rider. I never saw myself as a super hard core shave your legs type rider, so I opted for the "French Fit", which sizes the bike up and makes it more comfortable on long days in the saddle. You can read more on the link above after you put in your measurements.
I will be saving these for later when the new bike arrives. I sold the State Bikes Simpsons Single Speed last year due to it being to small and have been slowly saving my pennies for a new steed that fits a lot better. From the looks of the target measurements, I will be targeting a 58cm road bike instead of my usual 56cm bikes. This will be an interesting experiment and I will post more once I get the new bike and get it dialed in correctly.
