The 2010 Novara Randonee is the bike that has come the most close to fitting me in a long time for a road style bike. I am obviously overweight and not very flexible. The stock bike is almost perfect while riding seated since it has the relaxed head tube angle.
However, I cannot seem to find any leverage when I stand to pedal. When I stand to pedal on bikes in the past I usually could use the bars for some leverage.
Is there anything that I can do to the stock setup on the Randonee that will help when I stand to pedal? I'm guessing that I would have to give up some comfort while pedalling seated to get what I want to pedal while standing.
Oh well, I thought I would ask anyway.
