In which I look ridiculous, bikewiseMarch 3rd, 2012 at 10:52 am ET
I rode the Strida this morning to Kaffe 1668 on Greenwich Street, and I have to confess that I looked ridiculous, with my body leaned as far back as possible and my feet turned out like a pigeon’s in a vain attempt to keep my knees from knocking the handlebars. I need to move the seat back another centimeter (if it’ll go), and slide it either down or up another centimeter (the geometry is not intuitive, since the desire to straighten my legs by a centimeter does battle with the desire to lower the highest knee cycle point by a centimeter). Or, as I suggested on Twitter, maybe I should just chop off my feet.
In any case, 1668 (my neighborhood’s faux-Swedish-country coffeehouse) is full of tedious wealthy people in their 20s and I’m now full of espresso, so the trip wasn’t a total loss.ShareThis
