Doing a Gran Fondo in 12 days, and on the longer training rides I was experiencing some knee and low back pain so I made an appointment with my shop to get the fit checked. I had done this previously last season before the same event. Well to my surprise my seat needed to be raised a little over a cm and the handlebars to match! Seems because I had lost around 20lbs since the last time I had been in and lot of it was padding in the posterier that the fit had gotten out of whack. Just hope I can adjust to the new riding position for the 110 mile ride. He also told me to send the wife in to get her fit check. She lost 50lbs!
