Raleigh R600 2002. Equation wheelset. Full Shimano 105. Mainly a training rig to get my torn ACL/meniscus rehab surgery knee back into shape :( But I really enjoy cycling and the bike is great. Thanks for all the help, guys/gals.

btw- Like?

Give him a break. He's just enjoying himself Rivendell style.

stem looks "normal" length. maybe he has the long torso/not so long legs thing. the old motto - buy to fit the top tube?

Actuall, I have it setup this way (low saddle height) because it hurts to stretch my leg out all the way, its only temporary though. Thanks for the kudos..

btw- nobody noticed the MTB saddle? WTB Laser V :) more comfortable on me arse.
maybe it fitsSpunout

As you gain flexibility, and come out of the injury, you should be able to enjoy the benefits of raising the saddle. More power, and actually less stress on the knees with a few more inches.

I got a new ACL installed in December 2000.

This year I am shooting for 500 miles. Biking is great for rehab.

Make sure your set-up is easy on the knees, (float in pedals, seat position optimal, stay away from the big chain ring for a while)

Good Luck and enjoy!PEDDLEFOOT

This is certainly personal preference, but your wrists might be more comfortable with the handle bars turned up a little bit.

Have fun.

Nice ride.look271
