Awesome shot! One of your best, which in your case is saying something!
The nose of your saddle seems to point skywards. Doesn’t that hurt your … things?
Would like to use your ‘Iron Horse’ image on my page for MOMENTUM magazine,
Please email me asap.
Notice the height of the handlebars. High handlebars place the rider’s weight safely back on the sit bones, hence the nose-up saddle position. This is normal for a bike set-up in this way.
There’s a 3D mural painted on Mississippi River seawall of my Cape Girardeau, MO, hometown that would lend itself to a similar picture. I’ll have to rip off your idea the next time I’m there.
It’s funny that I never think to include my bike in pictures until it’s too late.
I guess it’s because newspaper photographers try to keep any trace of themselves out of the picture: no camera bag in the background, no shadow of yourself in the frame, etc.
Old habits are hard to break.
That’s not a Brooks Flyer, is it? Something a bit wider? How much good does it do for you?
I am looking to put a Flyer on a hardtailed 29er. I’m sold on Brooks: B17Ns on my city bike and fixed-gear; Ti Swallow on my road bike (found it 1/2 price!).
That’s a B67 – one of my favorites for bikes with relatively upright ergonomics.
I love your photos! I’m looking forward to seeing your mural shots…
