    Question about set up.

    When you guys are sitting in your normal riding position, looking down at the handle bar. Does your front axle line up with it, or fall behind it, or ahead of it ? My Sirrus falls a little behind, and the Trek a good bit behind. Just wondering how everyone else is ?

    On my hybrid and mtb the bars are inline, on most of my road bikes the bars are a little ahead because I like the stretched out position on them. I believe inline is what most people should aim for.

    I was thinking that also, added a bar extension that feels great. (on the Trek) but noticed that my axle is closer to me. I'm confused because I don't feel to stretched out ?
