Stopped dead by a large advert in a shop window...

Train of thought..

*SPDs and plastic platforms on a road bike, tut tut.

*She's going to ruin her knees with the saddle that low.

*Nice arse.

Jo Burt has spent the majority of his life riding bikes, drawing bikes and writing about bikes. When he's not scribbling pictures for the whole gamut of cycling media he writes words about them for road.cc and when he's not doing either of those he's pedaling. Then in whatever spare minutes there are in between he's agonizing over getting his socks, cycling cap and bar-tape to coordinate just so. And is quietly disappointed that yours don't He rides and races road bikes a bit, cyclo-cross bikes a lot and mountainbikes a fair bit too. Would rather be up a mountain.

Not to mention the chaffing she'll get from her inappropriate riding apparel.

Still, I'm sure she'll get lots of offers to make it better  3

the phrase "stack height" instantly comes to mind.

I agree with Jo though, it's the poor girl's knees I'm worried about

Maybe the saddle is the right height if she took her platforms off. I think CTC should advertise like this?

If I could be anything I'd like,
I'd be the saddle of a lady's bike.
