I'm a guy (5'9" 215lbs) trying to get back into riding regularly once spring starts. Last year I noticed that when I ride my Specialized Allez Sport (05) for longer than 20 minutes, I start getting some numbness in my hands. I ride on top of the drops as riding in the drops is awkward for me, and I am not an Uber rider anyway. I also get saddlesore.
Are these things common, or should I be concerned? I did not get a specialty fit when I bought the bike, as an extra $150 wasn't in the budget. As it was I got a deal on the bike because it was a previous year's model. My goal is to follow through on the initial reason I purchased the bike in the summer of 06 and get more fit. I also want to ride in some longer event rides later this year.
I'm hoping I didn't make a huge mistake in buying this particular bike, because if I did the likelyhood of me getting a new one this year is slim to none with the way the economy has impacted my job.
Hints and suggestions are appreciated.
