over my last handful of rides, i've started to notice some tightness in both my hamstrings. if i shift forward a bit on my saddle it almost instantly goes away. i dont know enough about cycling form and/or fit on the bike to know why moving forward on the saddle relieves the tightness. any thougts/advice on this?
a couple thoughts i had:
-saddle shape isnt ideal for me
-saddle fore/aft isnt in the right place
-saddle height isnt in the right place
-foot placement isnt in the right place on the pedals
-shifting forward in the saddle changes my hip angle/positioning causing me to use my quads/glutes and not my hamstrings
do any or all of these sound like possible culprits?
initially i assumed it was the fore/aft position so i moved the saddle foreward. however, i still noticed the hammy tightness with the saddle moved forward quite a bit unless i shifted myself forward in the saddle.
any enlightenment you can share is very much appreciated. thanks!
