I went from a straight bar hybrid bike to a Ridley X-box in 2012. I do more touring on gravel roads and paved roads than anything else. I have started thinking about going back to my old bike. I have never felt that comfortable and stable on my cyclocross bike as I did with my old one.
My old one I could stear without hands and my back never got sore. With my cyclocross bike my back hurts, taint aches and if I let go of my handlebars for a split moment I will crash. I have tried adjusting it several times and haven't had much luck. I have also gone to a bike shop to get it adjusted in the year's past.
Any suggestions before I start bike shopping? I have another saddle I am going to give a whirl that I used to like to see if that helps, I just feel my stability and my aches and pains are all related.
