Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Its not hard. Just need to take your time and learn. Some people have caught onto this new site that helps people with tutorials. Its called "YouTube". Its amazing. Videos and tutorials for days Lol.

Seriously, @bugly64 I was hesitant to do any work myself, but adjusting your bars and hoods is about as easy as taking your front wheel off.

Overall, though, the bike is definitely hot! Love the color. In fact, love most everything except the fit looks a little odd. You must be mostly torso! What crankset is that, btw?

The frame and fork look good. Don't dig the billboard wheels. Looks painful to ride.

5'6" with a 31.5" inseam... So I'm actually mostly leg. LOL It's a 49cm frame, way small. The cranks are SRAM Red 2012 that I sanded and then I put Stronglight CT2 rings on.

Ravenmore's bike is hot. Getting hand caught in crank reaching for water bottle way low on seat tube maybe not so hot.
