I recently had a bike fit done. Overall, I am very happy with it. I had my seat too high and too far forward. Now I just feel more... efficient. Putting the deat down and back a centimeter or two made a huge difference.
I wish I could say the same for my hands. Before the fit, I had the bars tilted slightly up, with the levers relatively high on the hooks. See below:
Now, the tops of the bars are flat, and the levers go straight out over the transition:
It is comfortable if I stand over the bars and lean straight down, but when I am leaning forward, I feel like I have to turn my wrists down and grip the hoods to keep from sliding forward.
Is this a problem with core strength or flexibility? All of the advice I have heard is to give the fitter the benefit of the doubt and try the fit for a few hundred miles, but I can't even finish my 6 mile commute without getting uncomfortable.
I asked the fitter about feeling like I'm sliding forward, and his advice was to hook my pinkies behind the bars to keep from sliding forward.
