    On the hoods, that's not how it should be. You should see an LBS about a bike fit. Fitting can't be done on the internet.

    have a look at this short video that covers the basics of bike fitting

    do seek advice, make your bike as comfortable as you can for the type of riding you do

    I agree that bike fit can't be done via the internet, but here's a primer to get you in the ballpark.
