Schwinn searcher sport. Just picked it up from the LBS. Will be used to help me lose some weight, 18 lbs and counting.

Edit: From my electronics knowledge (I'm not only active on this forum, y'know! I have another favorite forum, where I have over 2,000 posts), I know why your iPhone camera performed so poorly. It is because you took the picture in a poorly lit area and the image sensor in the phone performs very poorly in low light situations.
Take care, RIDE SAFE, have FUN!
1993 Mongoose Switchback Ridged MTB, converted to a "Rail Trail Bike"! :)
Here is my Diamondback Insight 2 on the trail this morning!
It was 38* when I parked at Tobin Park this AM, but I was prepared, and I had a pretty good 22 mile ride all the way up into McAllister Park and back and tacked on a few more miles after that.
One thing about it, it wasn't very crowded for a Saturday morning!
LarDasse74, in answer to your question is no I don't, but that might be remedied in your case by trying to adjust your seat where it's either level or tilted slightly back to transfer your weight a little rearward.
On my old bike it didn't fit, and I had that problem, but when your fitted correctly to the bike it isn't a concern, so you need to tweek yours until you find a happy medium.

My longest ride is a little over 10 miles, but I didn't have any numbness in my hands/arms then... nor any other time I've ridden. I really like the multiple different hand positions the drop bars offer, which was the reason I did the conversion, not for any speed/aero reasons.
I returned those godawful Forté Kōr barends. There was absolutely no padding and it was torture (I know this from riding on the trainer, not going on an actual ride ). I won a pair of Agogo ultralight bar ends on ebay. Buy it now price was $20, and there was no bid at 1:30 left in the auction. So I kept watching it, and at 10min before the end of the auction I put in my lowball bid of $0.99. I won the pair! I ended up paying $6 because of shipping, but I think I got a great deal! I taped them and installed them right when they arrived. I'll post a picture when I go for my next ride!
