Just starting to ride again for this year and one of my goals for this year is to make use of the "drops" and the lower portion of my road bike bar. I generally have ridden on the hoods or on the bar top.
I have two issues when I try to ride in this more aero position.
1: I have pedal extensions (like kneesavers) that basically align my elbows with my knees so my knee or lower thigh contacts my elbow at the top of the pedal strokes.
2: As a clyde my gut (belly, stomach, etc) interferes with my upper thighs.
Basically my questions are: Are either of these things cause for alarm? Will I get used to them eventually?
I had my bike professionally fit to me a couple years ago so while it probably isn't perfectly fit after 2 years, it should be pretty close. Any comments or suggestions would be appreciated.
