OK, maybe I have been reading too much but I think my LBS may have suggested the wrong size bike to me. I am 170cm tall and riding a 19.5 inch Trek Mountain Bike. All the suggestions I have seen on this site given to other of a similar height suggest the size below. My bike setup, is all how it came with the saddle level with the top of the steerer tube, so about 2 inches below the handlebars. I don't tend to feel too stretched out while riding, but then again I don't tend to ride over an hour too often.
Am I just paranoid? I don't want to use this as an excuse not to ride, but it keeps creeping up on me. So, I guess I am begging for a bit of encouragement as well. I have had it for about 6 months now and I just trusted the bike shop on their suggestion at the time as I knew nothing about bikes. Could I possibly do anything about it now? I doubt it.
