if its a problem start leaning back further, or at least lean back when you go to do x-ups..

well i had this problem with my last frame it was to big for me so i mosty lean on the handle bars , but my body would be over the middle of the bike and not over more on the seat. I fix that by getting rid of my old frame and bought a smaller frame. Now i have been riding on the right part of the bike and not trying to balance on the front of it.

Try to leard how to spell.
