Just picked a Trek 4500 and I love it. going to use it mostly for trails and parks, some light riding with a baby seat for the little one.
Quick question: Where is the best placement for the brakes and shift levers. My LBS had to order my bike and they called me for pick up when it was assembled. I didn't test ride it there, but when I got home i realized the brake levers were 'under' the grips, instead of 'infront' of the grips from the riders point of view.
I could swear the levers were in the 'infront' position on the 4500 i tested at a different LBS.
Any thoughts?? THis is a great bike store and I'm sure they will work with me on placement, but I wanted this groups opinion first, since they are a bit a drive, as well and I can probably adjust the levers myself.
