You might want to look in on the new Fit Forum, it covers fitting the bike to you properly. Things like Ron's suggestion for your saddle angle can make your riding much more enjoyable, with less chance of injuries or pain. Saddle height, tilt, fore and aft location, the stem length and height, bar rotation and width and crank length all should and can easily be correct for your body and your riding style, its not difficult and the forum can answer your questions. A good local bike shop (LBS here) can help you with this also and there are really great books like Lennard Zinn's series and Joe Friel's books. Best wishes on your riding.
