When I'm riding near the hoods on the top of the bars, it feels like my hands want to slide forward unless they're blocked by something like the bend in the bars or stopped at the ends of the brake hoods. It feels like, if there wasn't a physical obstruction, I would slide right off the front of the bars. First, is this normal? If it is I'll quit complaining and just get used to it. How much weight should be on the hands?
Could this be affected by saddle tilt? I feel like the saddle is tilted too far down. I tried tipping it up one notch and that helped but there was too much pressure in the soft tissue so I put it back. It feels like I want to put it somewhere between the two positions so I'm thinking of getting a micro adjustable seatpost like a Thomson. Could an adjustment that small make that big of a difference?
Could the reach affect it? I feel kind of stretched out but I haven't really ridden in a long time so I wasn't sure if I just needed more time to get used to it?
I would welcome your wisdom.
