Extended Sitero Review Via Andrew Fast

Product: Specialized Sitero

 

Reviewed by: Andrew Fast

 

Test Date(s): July 20, 2013 - August 20, 2013

 

Activity: Triathlon

 

Conditions: Mostly summer riding conditions (dry and warm) but the saddle saw the following conditions for at least one ride: humid, rain, sleet, hail, and dry heat.

 

Abstract:

The socialization to road cycling is a domino effect, someone sees someone doing something, then sees someone else doing the same thing--no matter how ridiculous it is--by the time that third person is seen the trend becomes accepted and before you know you’ve got full grown men going 15mph in a skin suite on what looks like a NASA spacecraft designed for Mach1 speeds. Nevertheless riding a bike is fun, and riding fast is even funner. At least that has been my experience.

 

Cycling is still a loose science--lots of experiments and far out thoughts being tossed around; some valid, some not. But the most assured path to going faster, and thus having more fun, is trying out equipment and training philosophies that are working for at least three people.

 

It should be noted that during the short testing window:

-Ironman Timberman 70.3 (12th fastest 0’all bike split) (56 miles: 2:17)

-Ironman Boulder 70.3 (23rd fastest 0’all bike split) (56 miles 2:13)

 

 

Key Features & Benefits:

 

-Body Geometry--flat saddle but good when in aero position.: They’ve done it once again! The sit bones find a home just right and the pelvis finds a cocked forward position that allows for strong pull through on the up-stroke.

 

-Negative cut rails= free movement of hips: Look at the hips of the saddle, unlike other Specialized BG saddles this thing is flat, which is off-putting at first. But then a person rides the saddle in aero and realizes the position doesn’t require hips for the sit bones but instead needs to allow free and clear movement for the hip and provide a perch for your ass--which this seat does amazingly well.

 

-Hills: Sitero is still a good perch on the steeps: one of my concerns in visually examining the saddle was having something to kick back against when climbing; cushion for pushin. Once again this saddle didn’t disappoint; the sit bones find the the sweet spot and generating power wasn’t a problem..

 

Durability: As was expected I ran into a low hanging sign with two bikes on my new roof mounts. Sitero handled the shock and gut punch very well--it’s a resilient saddle and nothing breaks easy.

 

Critique:

 

-Don’t go on 4hr upright easy spins with this saddle. It’s meant to be ridden in the bars at high speeds--it’s a specialised (no pun intended) piece of kit--not designed for you long slow base miles.

 

-Silver stripe in middle is wearing off already.

 

Conclusion:

 

In the pursuit of going faster, and thus happiness, I promote taking risks and trying things that may or may not work. This was my approach with the sleek but funny looking Sitero and what a pleasant surprise it was. My last race bike split was within 7 minutes of winner, Andy Potts, one the fastest triathletes on the planet. The comfort of this new saddle design, which isn’t mentioned above, is enough reason to give it a try; no odd pressure spots and for once comfort on the gouche while riding aero.

The inside line on 650b 27.5" from Specialized

The Inside Line - 650b

WHAT IS THE TALK ABOUT? There was a time when all mountain bikes had 26” wheels. A little more than 10 years ago, Gary Fisher turned the world onto these crazy big hoops called 29ers. It took us a while to understand them, dial in the geometry, wheels & tires, suspension, and components, but now we are believers that in many cases the larger wheel is superior because of its confident handling and ability to roll over obstacles.

With the likes of Jaroslav Kulhavy winning the Olympics on an Epic 29—while Ned Overend and hordes of trail riders discovered the capabilities of bikes like the Crave, Rockhopper, Jett, Camber, and Stumpjumper FSR, all with 29” wheels. The introduction of the ladies Fate & Rumor and the all-mountain Enduro 29 showed the MTB world that we are innovating to make our 29ers the best bikes out there. 26” wheels still are a player in Stumpy’s, Enduro’s and gravity bikes. There is an emerging third wheel size, 650b, which is larger than 26” but smaller than a 29er.

WHAT IS THE DEAL? With the wheel size of 650b being called 27.5” many believe that it fits perfectly in between the two existing wheel sizes. There is some allure to this idea because on paper it would seem that you could get the best of both worlds: a wheel that rolls over obstacles like a 29er while being easier to make work with longer travel bikes.

To be clear, 650b is not halfway between 26” and 29”. The true way to measure a wheel is the ETRTO, which is the true diameter of the tire bead seat, at the base of the sidewall. 26” = 559mm; 650b = 584mm; 29” = 622mm. If 650b was truly 27.5” the ETRTO would be 590.5mm. As it is not, 650b should actually be called 27.19”.

HAVE WE LOOKED AT 650B? Yes. Absolutely. We have built (and ridden!) several brands of 650b bikes as well as tried out some prototypes of our own in several travel lengths and on different terrains.

THE FUTURE? We don’t have a crystal ball; we don’t know the future for 650b though it is gaining momentum.  It is important that you know we will not introduce a 650b bike in 2013 but we will continue, as always, to build the best bikes through continuous research and design, whatever the wheel size.

We know that geometry is king, no matter the experience or the riding style of the rider. The Specialized style of geometry — low bottom bracket and short chain stays for precise, snappy handling, plus a roomy top tube for comfortable positioning — is tuned for the experience across all families. We always carefully optimize geometry for wheel size as well. One day, 650b may make its way into the family. Regardless, we will continue making the best bikes possible for riders — no matter the wheel size.

May your climbs be swift and painless, your descents as fun as ever,
The Women’s, MTB, & ATB Teams

Based on Shannons Statistics report WB customers ride an average of 7.3 and 10.1 hours a week.

Woodinville Bicycle

Customer Weekly Riding Times

Shannon Leigh Kehoe

BIS 315

*      Statistical Problem:  How many hours do Woodinville Bicycle customers ride their bikes each week?

*      Raw Data:  Data was gathered by convenience sampling.  Customers were asked, at random, how many hours they estimate that they ride each week.  Answers are compiled below.

1  1  1  1  2  2  2  2  3  3  3  3  3  3  4  4  4  4  4  4  4  4  4  4  6  6  6  6  7  7  8  8  8  8  8  8  8  8  8  8  8  8  9  9  9  9  9  9  9  10  10  10  10  10  10  10  10  10  10  10  10  10  10 10  11  11  11  11  11  12  12  12  12  12  12  12  12  12  12  12  12  12  12  13  13  13  15  15  15  15  16  16  17  18  18  19  19  20  20  25

*      Analysis #1:  Mean/Median/Mode

o   Mean:  (Sum of all data)/(Number of data points(n))

§  1+1+…+25= 927

§  n=100

§  927/100=9.27

§  Mean= 9.27 hrs/wk ridden by WB customers.

o   Median:  The median number is the middle number from an ordered list of data points.  In this case, the number of data points is even, so the median is halfway between the two middle numbers of the list.

§  Data point 50 is 10, data point 51 is also 10.

§  The median of the data points is 10 hrs/wk.

o   Mode:  The mode represents which number appears most frequently in the data set.  In this case, more people answered that they ride 10 hrs/wk than any other number of hours.

§  The mode of the data set is 10 hrs/wk.

*      Analysis #2:  Percentiles

o   We want to know how many hours per week one third (33%) of WB customers ride.

§  To find the middle 33% we must first find the lower and upper 33 percentiles.

§   mean)/=z-score (where n is the number of data points and  is the standard deviation. Use the standard deviation function on your calculator to determine the data sets σ: 4.8635)

§  Rearrange to solve for the data value: z-score x  + mean

§  Using the z-score sheet, find the z-score that correlates to the percentiles we want to work with.  33%=-.44, 66%=0.41.

§  Plug in these numbers into the rearranged equation we worked out above.  -0.44 x 4.8635 + 9.27= 7.13.  This tells us that 33% of WB riders ride fewer than 7.13 hrs/wk.                                                                                             0.41 x 4.8635 + 9.27= 11.26.  This tells us that 66% of riders rider fewer than 11.26 hrs/wk.

§  The middle 33% ride between the two given numbers, so we can say that a third of WB cyclists ride between 7.13 and 11.26 hrs/wk.

*      Analysis #3: Confidence Interval

o   Now we want to see how well our data represents the entire population of Woodinville Bicycle customers.  We will use the information from the sample to find the 95% confidence interval of the population mean. 

§  First, we need to find the margin of error: (2 x σ )/

·         (2 x 4.8635)/ = 0.9727.  The margin of error is 0.9727.

§  We get the 95% confidence interval by subtracting and adding the margin of error from/to the sample set’s mean: 9.27-0.9727=8.2973 and 9.27+0.9727=10.2427

§  The data supports with 95% confidence that the population mean falls between 8.2973 and 10.2427 (8.2973<μ<10.2427).

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

*      Graphical Representation: Frequency Chart


Discussion:

      I found the information gathered from the data very interesting; the mean, median, and mode were all between 9 and 10 hours per week, a third of WB cyclists ride between about 7 and 12 hours per week, and the confidence interval puts the population mean between just above 8 to just above 10 hours per week.  The chart shows that the most frequent answers given were between 8 and 12 hours.  This is interesting to me because all of the analyses of data line up quite nicely, and give us a very clear picture of the riding habits of Woodinville Bicycle customers. 

      There are a few uncertainties in the data collected, however, and I feel that a more thorough sampling method may provide different results.  First, the only people involved in taking the survey were customers who I helped on the days that I work (which is Thursday through Sunday.)  Second, cyclists may have accidentally over or under estimated the amount of time they spend riding, or they could have given a false number.  Given these possible sampling errors, I think the data gave good insight and a good estimate of the number of hours per week all Woodinville Bicycle customers ride per week.

Simply the most helpful, knowledgeable and considerate bicycle shop I have ever experienced. I actually look forward to each visit and know that any questions I have will be accurately answered. Great staff and management, too. Darrin, Mike, Ron and Cory (sorry to those I miss) are a pleasure to do business with. Just last week, Darrin noticed that I probably needed a bike fit due to how I was standing. It turned out that many little aggravations that I attributed to "suffering" on the bike could easily be corrected. In about an hour I was experiencing the most comfort from my shoes and the bike itself in the year and a half that I have owned it. Truly a revelation and I thank Woodinville Bike and the BG Fit System (Specialized) for it. You cannot make a mistake by giving them your patronage.

It is a awesome store with very helpful staff. The manager Darren Manci  and the rest of the staff are very courteous, helpful and friendly. I was on the look out for bike for my child and saw this store when I was driving by that street, the manager and other kid who were then in the store were very helpful, we are novice in bikes, showed us a couple of options and helped my child test drive both and recommended a bike that would work best for him. Also when I asked if they match competitive prices, they gave me another big name in the area and the manager himself called as well and checked the price for me to match it, but the prices were the same, hence there was no need for a price match. They also were willing to deliver it to my home and answered all the questions my child  and I had and made us feel comfortable in a bike that fitted the chid the best.

I would strongly strongly recommend this store to anybody. Looking forward to working with them for years ahead.

Customer service is exceptional and they make you feel at home and also offered a warm 'thank you' for giving them the business.

Yesterday during a beautiful but hot day I was 30 miles into a 60 mile ride I got a flat and used my only spare tube to fix. Not wanting to go the rest of the ride without a spare I hustled over to Woodinville Bicycle and Skate before they closed for the day. Unfortunately I missed closing by 15 minutes.

The store manager (Darren) was still there closing up and he let me in, sold me a couple of tubes, filled my water bottle for me and even offered up some sports drink to get me the salt and such I lose from sweating in the heat.

I was surprised and impressed with how nice they were doing whatever to help out their customers. Even though this shop is 20 miles away from my home, next time I need to buy a bike, parts, clothes or anything I'll make the trip. Buy stuff here, I highly recommend them.

Have done business with this shop for several years -- top notch in every way.  I have bought several bikes and have had excellent service. They love what they do, respect their customers and go out of their way to give customers good value and a great experience.  Keep up the great work, Mike, Darrin and Cory!

Woodinville Bicycle is OUTSTANDING!!  Everyone is very knowledgeable, friendly, willing to help, answer questions, teach, and make sure you walk out of the store happy.  I am new to cycling and had a budget for my new bike. The staff respected my budget, taught me about what to look for, how the correct bike should fit and feel.  I have been back several times to ask questions, and go for test rides.  I feel taken care of and know I will get an honest opinion.  I will use Woodinville Bicycle for all my cycling needs.

Thank you Darren, Christina and the Woodinville Bike staff!!

These folks have been doing great bike tuneups for me for 10 years or so. Good selection of accessories, good recommendations about equipment, and a fantastic taping job! We changed gearing on a mountain bike and I was surprised how reasonably priced it was.

Fuji Track Elite MSRP: $4749


Brand new for 2013, the Track Elite sets a new standard for a world-class track bike. In track racing, every move, every second counts. Steering precision and direct response are not only important, they can make the difference between gold and silver. Fuji's new Track Elite is 27% stiffer than our previous version, gaining this advantage in the down tube, bottom bracket, and head tube/fork areas, yet it still comes in 23% lighter. Not only for sprint events, the Fuji Track Elite is designed with Omnium geometry for unparalleled performance across all velodrome events.

Featuring patented RIB technology in the down tube and fork blades, the Fuji Track Elite is designed for off-the-chart stiffness which transfers into off-the-chart responsiveness. We are the first track bike maker to feature a tapered head tube and fork giving the sprinter improved power transfer. Designed in the wind tunnel, the Track Elite has an internal seat bolt binder that not only adds to its sleek lines, it also improves its aerodynamics. We've added solid, stainless steel dropout faces so constant gear changes don't ruin this important wheel-frame contact area.

It is a awesome store with very helpful staff. The manager Darren Manci and the rest of the staff are very courteous, helpful and friendly. I was on the lookout for bike for my child and saw this store when I was driving by that street, the manager and other kid who were then in the store were very helpful, we are novice in bikes, showed us a couple of options and helped my child test drive both and recommended a bike that would work best for him. Also when I asked if they match competitive prices, they gave me another big name in the area and the manager himself called as well and checked the price for me to match it, but the prices were the same, hence there was no need for a price match. They also were willing to deliver it to my home and answered all the questions my child and I had and made us feel comfortable in a bike that fitted the child the best.
I would strongly recommend this store to anybody. Looking forward to working with them for years ahead.
Customer service is exceptional and they make you feel at home and also offered a warm 'thank you' for giving them the business.

Yesterday during a beautiful but hot day I was 30 miles into a 60 mile ride I got a flat and used my only spare tube to fix. Not wanting to go the rest of the ride without a spare I hustled over to Woodinville Bicycle and Skate before they closed for the day. Unfortunately I missed closing by 15 minutes.

The store manager (Darren) was still there closing up and he let me in, sold me a couple of tubes, filled my water bottle for me and even offered up some sports drink to get me the salt and such I lose from sweating in the heat.

I was surprised and impressed with how nice they were doing whatever to help out their customers. Even though this shop is 20 miles away from my home, next time I need to buy a bike, parts, clothes or anything I'll make the trip. Buy stuff here, I highly recommend them.

Have done business with this shop for several years -- top notch in every way. I have bought several bikes and have had excellent service. They love what they do, respect their customers and go out of their way to give customers good value and a great experience. Keep up the great work, Mike, Darrin and Cory!

Woodinville Bicycle is OUTSTANDING!! Everyone is very knowledgeable, friendly, willing to help, answer questions, teach, and make sure you walk out of the store happy. I am new to cycling and had a budget for my new bike. The staff respected my budget, taught me about what to look for, how the correct bike should fit and feel. I have been back several times to ask questions, and go for test rides. I feel taken care of and know I will get an honest opinion. I will use Woodinville Bicycle for all my cycling needs.
Thank you Darren, Christina (Christian) and the Woodinville Bike staff!!
Cheers - Sarah

The reason I'm going through the hassle to specify the shops information is because I've seen some reference to a Woodinville bike & skate shop which has a poor review. I'm trying to avoid any confusion. I have not seen any skates at this shop, and feel like it might have been confused with another store.
Experiences so far:
Awesome! :)
Examples:
1) Commuting home from Bellevue to Lynnwood after work on the Sammamish River trail and a fellow biker tells me my rear tire is out of true. Come to find out I have a busted spoke, and a couple loose ones. I've got 20 miles more before I get home, so I carefully travel another 8 miles and stop at Woodinville Bicycle. It's already 20 min's to store closing and the mechanics are busy, but they find time to fix me up anyway. All of the employees were extremely helpful, and happy to help. Sweet!! I didn't have to catch a bus and walk home in road bike shoes.
2) I've been experiencing knee problems for months, and it was really taking the pleasure out of riding. I had had a bike fitting done elsewhere, but it didn't correct my problems. I scheduled a bike fitting at Woodinville Bike because they are certified in both http://BikeFit.com and Specialized fit methods. After a 200 mile Seattle to Portland ride and 600 miles total so far, my knee problems are almost gone. I may need one more slight adjustment (which is included in the original fitting), but I'll give it a few more hundred miles to confirm, and make sure it's not form the preexisting issues.
3) One of my friends stopped by the shop in the middle of a ride because she had a flat. She was fixed in no time, and with a better quality tire (at her request, not by employee up selling), and hasn't had a flat since.
My experience at this shop from unexpected bike service, parts and accessories recommendations & purchase have all been great. There's no BS, they're friendly and helpful, and I'll continue to make this my primary shop whenever possible.
Some gear pricing may not be quite as competitive as you would find at Performance or Greg's, but you do get what you pay for.

These folks have been doing great bike tune-ups for me for 10 years or so. Good selection of accessories, good recommendations about equipment, and a fantastic taping job! We changed gearing on a mountain bike and I was surprised how reasonably priced it was.

Customer Feedback

Hey guys,

Ryan Hughs here who had you all order that 2012 Epic Comp 29er. First, just some thanks for an awesome experience from initial questions and browsing to bike fit. This was one of the best cycling decisions I've ever made. Which leads me to the second thing about this bike:

Faster. Better. Period. This thing is freakin amazing! My other mtb (which is up for sale already!!) is an Epic 26er. It is an incredible improvement. A few things most noteworthy:
1) the 29er climbs technical and tight corners BETTER. that's right, smoother, easier, faster = better. I couldn't believe it when I hit a very familiar super-tight and technical switchback climb and I was spinning the pedals thru what the day before took alot of concentration.
2) once i had the bigger wheel turning radius down i was railing descents. i was a bit shocked! the front end of this bike is very stiff, to boot. ready for a Super D win.
3) i also actually found i COULD 'throw it around' and jump it like my 26er. this is the thing everyone says you might miss with a 29er. not with this bike! (i'll let you know how it does at Duthie on the bigger tabletops etc.)
4) i LOVE my body position on the bike. everything from feeling like i have 'access' to all my power (thru my core to my legs thru the full pedal rotation) to being able to easily stand up even on steeper climbs (!) and a) not loose traction, b) accelerate in a noticeably quicker fashion

I could go on, but that's enough ;). In my opinion, for cross country applications of ANY kind, the debate between 26er and 29er is over. these are faster period. i'm sold. for good!

Darren, Mike, the rest, thanks!! see you soon for a tune-up ;)
