Finally.. got used for what it was intended. Went to da shops, we even tried a bridleway albeit briefly. And I’m glad we did, had a flash back to the Wolds circa 1990, off-roading my road bike in stripey victorian stylee shorts complete with lace trim*, black Fila’s, wind in my hair (no helmet back then) sun always shone..

Cut back to the present – budget saddle choice didn’t make its presence felt.. exactly as it should be. The ‘wider’ bars seem just as narrow, shoulders still feel like they’re at ear level. Work in progress. Didn’t fall off, this time.

* what was I thinking…

    Just remember to hang your bag from the correct side!

  2. Nice shiny bike. Glad it finally followed its true calling. Have you had a doctor check that your shoulders aren’t *actually* at ear level? I mean, you never know. ;)

    Correct side – huh?

    Good point but you’d think the shoulder doc might have mentioned something if they weren’t in the ‘right’ place to start with…

    Stripey shorts with lace trim? The mind boggles!

    The strap should be over your left shoulder. Over your chest from top left to bottom right.

    Well it just so happens it is but why ’shouldn’t’ it be the other way round if that’s more comfy?

    Depends on how the bag is built, although most are built right handed but some are ambidextrous and some are even built left handed…

    I only meant not the hurty shoulder ;0)

    Lawks I’m a dope… forgot about the third leg thingy.. but bags go over the left non-hurtey shoulder by default anyway.
