    Meaning my wrists are bent at an angle when I'm on the hoods, where I almost always ride. And while it's not painful, I do get numbness and have to give my hands a good shake every few km.

    See, my physio/fitter gave me both 80mm and 90mm stems after my appointment. She said that at some point in the not-too-distant future I would graduate to the 90mm stem. I figure I'll try it on...

    Keeping knees in

    When I was out on my last ride, a very kindhearted cyclist pulled up next to me and explained that my knees were splaying outward as I was pedalling and that I should focus on keeping them in,...
