That seat is kind of strange regarding angle. There are two foam densities in the seat and when it's angled like that you kind of sit on a shelf, and you dong/tea-bags dangle down. I feel neutral during the ride, hands off the bars, sitting up and eating.

Super stoked on my new bike rack. The GF bought this for me after I bought her a bike last month :



Didnt take a picture from earlier this week with both bikes loaded up, but the subie is sure looking nice with the trusty steed aboard.

What bike rack is that? I used to have a thule t2 that I loved but I ended up selling it (mistake). I can't bring myself to spend the same money getting another one. That rack looks pretty nice.

Oh yeah, definitely not transporting the MTB on the Seasucker. But that's because I'm more worried about the car. The 17lb roadie, OTOH...

@EERock- My Thule T2 has been going strong for 6 years, and survived one car crash with no issues. It has lifetime warranty just in case. Never found a bike it couldn't fit.

It sucks, but just pony up and buy the good stuff.

This one is a swagman g2, which was replaced with the g10 model apparently. Since it was an older model and sitting at my LBS i made them an offer, and got it for ~270 otd. I'm very happy with it so far, SUPER sturdy and I've taken it on a few epic dirt roads already. Also, on my subie, the way the platform is "raised" from the hitch point is a HUGE plus. It doesn't seem to kill my ground clearance much for ditches/uphill, at least so far.

DC2, where in CO?

Holy hell that's insane.

I don't know anything about bikes or racing, what's up with the whistles?
