Bike Saddle Tilt
- A bicycle saddle, often called a seat, is one of three contact points on an upright bicycle, the others being the pedals and the handlebars. The bicycle saddle has been known as such since the bicycle evolved from the draisine, a forerunner of the bicycle.

Masi Sprint D 7 28 11
My brand spanking new Masi Speciale Sprint track bike. With the exception of the headset (by Ritchey) which I had installed at my LBS, I built this up from parts off my old track bike (a Tommaso Augusta) and stuff I found on sale on the internet. I went for a modern/retro look... little touches like the black Tressostar cloth handlebar tape and San Marco Regal track saddle w/copper rivets seemed to be a good match for this frameset. The Weinmann DP18 36h rims f/r w/serviceable bearings are on the heavy side, but are bulletproof. The SRAM crankset with 175mm crankarms and 48t chainring gives me the leverage I like on longer rides. The rear wheel is fixed/fixed 15t/17t. The bars and stem are Cinelli pista. The front brake is a Campy Mirage with a Cane Creek crosslever. The seatpost is by Race Face (it's a Thompson design... great for micro-adjustments to saddle tilt). The crankset is matched to a 68mm English thread Power Spline bottom bracket by Truvativ... this is a sealed-bearing design and the only brand that I haven't been able to burn through in 60 days or less. The pedals are by Shimano and utilize an SPD clip on one side and a platform on the other. The frame-fit pump is a Zefal HP with 'smarthead' for Schraeder/Presta valves (and will effortlessly get a flat tire up to my standard 8 ATM's). Tires and tubes are by Vittoria. I use a wired Sigma 1106 to track my 'training' efforts these days.

After riding this bike quite bike a bit lately [must be the autumn colors], I noticed that as set up currently I rarely ride with my hands on the brake lever hoods. I typically ride in the drops or occasionally on the corners of the bars. So, I have now moved the levers down on the bar quite a bit. The tips are level with the bottom of the handlebar and now give an much easier and more natural reach and grip with my fingertips from the drops... I think they now also look a lot better too. Note that although the bottom of the handlebar looks perfectly horizontal, it is still tilted downward toward the rear - but only a few degrees. The saddle is also tilted downward toward the nose very slightly. For me, this set-up feels quite comfortable... on this particular bike. I think the preferred tilt of a handlebar can vary considerably from one bike to another depending on a number of factors - for example, the saddle height, length of top tube and reach of a handlebar relative to rider's torso length, and perhaps even the geometry of a bike (which could effect a rider's weight distribution on a given bike). Then again, maybe I just like to continually fidget or fine-tune my bikes, perhaps excessively. No apologies - Eddy Merckx was known to do this, too. DSCF0019c

ESPN Original Entertainment and the creators of "Rounders" have made "Tilt" one of the most talked about shows on TV. Featuring a superb cast and sizzling storylines, "Tilt" is an inside look at professional poker and the seedy Las Vegas backrooms known only to the most dedicated gamblers. Now, for the first time, TILT will be available on a three-disc DVD, loaded with bonus materials. For the show's fans, poker aficionados and those who love great entertainment, TILT is a must-have DVD. Bonus materials for TILT include an alternate ending for the first season, behind the scenes footage, outtakes, deleted scenes, actor auditions, and much more. There are more than three hours of bonus materials. TILT comes from executive producer Orly Adelson, who served in the same capacity on ESPN Original Entertainment's popular "Playmakers" series. Writers and Executive Producers Brian Koppelman and David Levien also wrote the poker-themed hit film "Rounders." TILT stars Michael Madsen ("Kill Bill" series; "Reservoir Dogs") as Don "The Matador" Everest, the champion poker-playing "king of the table." Facing off against the Matador is Eddie Towne (Eddie Cibrian, "Third Watch"), a hot-shot player driven by revenge, and Clark Marcellin (Todd Williams, "Lift") a young player out to de-throne the champ. Chris Bauer ("The Wire") plays Lee Nickel, a Midwestern sheriff looking for his brother's killer. Michael Murphy ("Tanner '88") appears as Molloy, head of a casino-owning family. Kristin Lehman ("Judging Amy," "Felicity") plays Miami, who has her eyes on the Matador.
The flashing lights and dark rooms of Las Vegas provide the backdrop for Tilt, a nine-episode ESPN series. A Mod Squad-esque trio of gamblers--Eddie (Eddie Cibrian, Baywatch Nights), Miami (Kristin Lehman, Dog Park), and Clark (Todd Williams, Lift)--maneuver through the world of high-stakes poker seeking to ruin a crooked champion player, Don "The Matador" Everest (Michael Madsen, Kill Bill, Vol. 2). The series teases out each player's backstory as they bet and bluff, trying to get enough leverage to hurt the Matador. Meanwhile, a revenge-driven Iowa sheriff (Chris Bauer, Broken Flowers) wants to put the Matador behind bars and he's not above getting dirty to do it. Strippers and brutal behind-the-scenes beatings give Tilt a good dose of sex and violence to accompany the wily machinations and philosophical musings about the game.
Tilt works hard to be tough and cool--maybe a little too hard; sometimes the swirling camera moves, slow motion shots, and swaggering dialogue struggle to disguise weak plotting and thin characters. Nonetheless, Madsen's squinty charisma, distinctive rasp, and lazy style fit the setting perfectly and supporting appearances by Michael Murphy (Tanner on Tanner) and Robert Forster (Jackie Brown) give the show a boost. Poker fans will enjoy cameos by real poker champs and some of the extras, including an excerpt from the 1998 World Series of Poker. --Bret Fetzer
