I am a 47 yo who purchased a Jamis Trail 2 mountain bike. The frame size was 17". I have tried everything and can't seem to get the bike to feel comfortable. This is my first bike in 30 years. I tried riding a 16 frame that belongs to a friend and it was much more comfortable.
I am 5'10" with a 29 inch inseam. (odd size I know) I used a chart after I learned a little more about bikes and it said I should have a 16 frame with a saddle height of 26.4 inches.
Is there anything you can do to make a bike that is too large work better? I can't afford to take the hit of loosing the new value by selling my bike and buying a another one. I purchased it three weeks ago.
I appreciate any help you can offer.
