I think I should adjust the bike. Allthough I cant put the handlebar any higher (all the spacers are underneath the handlebar at the moment) I might be able to adjust the saddle and maybe tilt the handlebar a bit up.Originally Posted by alfeng .
I presume that by the "aerodynamic position" you are referring to riding with your hands on the handlebar's DROPS ...
If THAT is the case, then while comfort is certainly subjective ...
Presuming you have not suffered an injury (e.g., whiplash/etc.) and/or you do not have a back problem then riding with your hands on the handlebar's DROPS should NOT be uncomfortable ...
IMO, if you are uncomfortable with your hands on the drops then you EITHER need to get MORE flexible ...
- of course, SRAM shifters will probably make riding on any bike less comfortable
- only half-kidding, BTW!!.
OR, change to different handlebars which have may have a different width, reach, curvature, whatever ... and/or, a different stem length.
I think I should go for one of these fitting sessions.
I didnt have an injury but I have a constant pain in the back that moves around (neck, waist, back) which goes away a bit when exercising. Nobody knows what it is. I am not that young either... /img/vbsmilies/smilies/redface.gif
