I'd like to make that swap with you! I will be traveling up to the panhandle probably around 14 or 15 Feb to look at homes. I can meet you at Gator Cycles about noon to make the swap. Fortunately, Gainesville is half way and a good place to eat lunch!
Are you going to give me the Patterson crank with the 165 mm crank arms or the one with the 170 mm arms? I would prefer the shorter ones but will take either. I figured the difference in the circumference is only about 1 1/4" inches from my 155 mm arms. I have been moving my seat up almost every time I ride. The knees are having no problem bending further and further. Best decision I ever made.
BTW, I made it 8.67 miles today and could have gone further. I also noticed I was going 8 mph in 6th gear. Since adjusting the gears, there isn't much difference between 6th and 7th. I used both of them more than 8th. I believe the legs are getting stronger and my cadence is getting faster. It will only get better with time. I'm going to get the carrier on the car and start hitting some long paths.
