Just bought my first bike in over 30years, primarily because I cannot run fast enough to keep up with the 5 year old on his new little Trekster. After a day on the Pure I took it back and got the Verve 3 (http://www.trekbikes.com/us/en/bikes...hybrid/verve_3). Seemed to be the best choice for keeping up with him (slow), huffing around Fort Lauderdale and getting a work out.
It is the latter that I need some help from the Forum of all things Bike. At 6'3" and 220lbs I was feeling cramped and my hands kept falling asleep. I had the handle bars raised and I raised the seat (got more power that way). But my hands keep getting the pins & needles around mile 5. I do think I need my seat pushed back and tilted up to get more weight on the saddle, right?
Are your hands supposed to be bent at the wrist? When they raised the handle bars it now seems like the Ergo Grips are misaligned. They're facing down so my wrists are bent at 45degrees when riding.
I'm sure I will have more Qs but the numb hands needs quick relief.
Thanks in advance
