Do any overweight Clydes have a bike that doesn't hurt to ride?
My LBS installed a steering tube extender, and that helped, but I still have problems. When I move my seat all the way forward, I feel best, but my hands still go to sleep after a few miles.
If I move my seat backward, my hands don't go to sleep as much, but I get piercing pain in my elbows. I'm not locking them. I have moved my Ergo grips so that my wrists aren't bent, but I still get the numbness.
I don't feel like I will ever break 25 miles with this kind of issue happening.
If it matters, I'm 6' 0" and 290 on a 19" Rockhopper with 2.35" Big Apples, riding only on the road with my fork locked out.
I'm quite frustrated, and I feel like the LBS is out of ideas, except for a longer steering tube extender, which would add yet another inch to the existing one.
I guess I'm wondering if it's a bike fit issue, or just b/c I'm so overweight.
