I've had my new road bike for five days now and I'm just enjoying the heck out of it. Not having been on a road bike for about 20 years (and pre back injury) I was concerned whether or not this was the right bike for me. I got a great fit from the LBS and the riding position is very comfortable...no apparent strain on my back. Not being an experienced road biker...not that I ever was...is there a right and wrong way to position your arms to relieve the stress on the elbow joint? I do take advantage of the different hand positions available on a road bike but should there be some flex in the elbow when positioned on the flat of the bar or the hoods? I've noticed some minor elbow discomfort after riding and don't know if I'm doing something wrong or should just chalk this up to some startup aches and pains.
