So I have two bikes - an old beater road bike and my race (triathlon) bike. I bought an extra set of aerobars and a reversible seatpost and am trying to set up my two bikes identically so I can have the beater bike live on my trainer and only ride my race bike outdoors. I have a Powertap P1 power meter, so it takes about 30" to switch it between the two bikes. This way I put less total mileage on my “nice” bike, and also always have a backup.
Using a tape measure and plumb bob, I have gotten the two fits pretty close, but not exactly. I’m having a particularly tough time getting the saddle setbacks to match using just a basic plumb bob and tape measure. Does anyone have suggestions for tools I could use that don’t cost $295?
I am thinking a basic adjustable drywall square would work, but I would need to rig something to anchor it to the bottom bracket (or floor). Any ideas?
Thanks a lot everyone!
