I've been having some back problems as of late, usually connected with riding, and have been advised in no uncertain terms that the fit of my bike is in problem. I was counseled that the seat needs to come down and the handlebars need to come up (mainly this). Problem is, the stem for the handle bars doesn't have much play to be able to come up without going over the minimum insertion line.
I'm sure someone in here has run into this, so I'm asking. Would it be good to try to find a longer stem, or just tough it out with this bike and wait until I can afford something different that I can have fitted to me?
