Ride the Puddles

New Bike, Test Ride, Fit

Posted by bikezilla on July 15, 2009

I picked up my brand new Kona “Jake the Snake” cyclcross bike today. And I have to say, Kona does one ugly ass paint scheme.

Skipped climing today, but took it out for a test to get a feel for the fit. I think the shoe cleats need moving back a little, and the seat needs to go back and up. I’ll make those adjustments tonight, then take it out for the same ride again tomorrow evening.

When out to Waterfall Glen at the 101st trailhead, but headed north so I could get in one time up the big hill toward the end.

Except for minor fit problems I’m pretty happy with how everything felt and how it climbed.

If my adjustments are right I should improve a little tomorrow. I hope, because today’s numbers were nothing special.
