Oh, and I guess I should mention the track bike has no brakes, thus never having been stretched out like this before.

No, not really. I've been on a track bike forever, and the reach is totally different for this new riding position where I'm on the hoods so much.

Okay, good answer thank you.

I figure I'll try raising it a little first, see if that resolves the issue, and if it doesn't, I'll get a shorter stem.

Thanks.

It's not the calipers they have great springs and work brilliantly, and the levers are without springs. Sort of hanging loose. I've tried threading the housing over the top, it helps a little, not a...

Seat Post limit

hey all, just got a Canpagnolo aero seatpost. It's about 1cm short (below the limit line). If I ride and race with the post above the limit line is that a terrible awful idea or should I not care?
