    your welcome. While I'm reasonably sure your position is ok, if playing with a stem that raises your bars a bit makes it more comfortable, then I go back to what I said before, to go with what feels...

    Azza--dont take this as a reason to reef your saddle all the way forward--having your seat too far forward puts your knees in a bad position and can cause knee issue--sure, it gets you closer to the...

    Kinda funny referring to a 22lb bike as heavy, but I still see drop bars and 28s being the big factor. When I ride my MTB vs my Tricross, there is a fair speed increase.

    his other bike is not a heavy mtn bike, but a 27lb drop bar bike with 28 slicks.
