The weather is driving me nuts. I has rained the last 3 weekends and it's drizzling now. Mercifully though the heat seems to be gone for the season, finally.Tonight I installed a new front derailer on my new-to-me Specialized Allez Sport. Aluminum frame with a carbon fork and a Shimano Tiagra 9 speed group with the exceptions of the derailers. The front der is an Claris and the rear is the venerable Shimano 105. It was essentially a gift from friend considering the price and the Bontrager Race Lite wheel set. So this will become the charity road bike. Now all I need to to do is become a charity road bike rider. The frame is 54 cm which is size wise probably at the practical limit of what I can ride. The saddle will most likely be replaced with a Brooks once I've decided to keep it. Looks like the first modification will be taking a couple inches off the seat post. Next swap the Look pedals for platform pedals. Then installing steer tube riser to make the posture more "old fat man friendly". By the time that all happens I should have a good idea as to the viability of my  prospects for completing the local MS150

They always had a funny concept, and for this article "old fat man friendly". The weather is truly one of the hardest enemy of outside sport. I think the changes you wanted to do is actually great, you may want to call it "old fat man friendly" but I think it would be pretty awesome. I am looking forward to see the result and your other bikes. This fatmanonabike is really interesting.
