Butt behind the seat...I can't
I picked up a used Trek 4300 in a size 16. Great deal on a barely used bike. I have short legs/tall upper body. 28-29" inseam. People here thought I should be ok with this size bike even though I am still touching a bit on standover.
But I keep reading you should be able to get your butt behind the seat. No way can I do that. Maybe the stem is too far forward to give me that kind of movement? But I have a taller upper body...maybe my arms are shot too?
Granted I may never do anything other than casual dirt trails but should this worry me?
