    I've been laid up with a sore elbow, so I haven't ridden in 3 weeks. I was also researching modifications to make so that I don't get another sore elbow. So this week I had the bars cut shorter,...

    Its simple. I did not want a MT bike or the stiff tires and suspension of a road bike. We have a lot of rough roads around here and I'm getting old. So the hybrid was the choice. Plus it was...

    Thanks for all the help. I think many of you are right. The bike is a bad fit. The handle bars are indeed pretty wide and with the twisting of the gear shift, I think that started my problem. Now...

    "Rest" for a sore elbow may be old school, but I'm old. I'll take the tried and true, especially when it hurts as much as it does today. I think my problem started with a couple of 8 mile rides on...

    These are some great suggestions. Thanks. Anyone got something else, I'd love to hear it. The alternative bars sounds best at first glance,but get an old bike or used parts has merits also.

    Hybrid to cx?

    I recently bought a hybrid, but I would really rather have drop bars on it. So what I was wondering is if a hybrid to CX conversion makes sense? I'm on the AARP side of things and the straight bars...

    I'm in the same boat as you. I'm off the bike till my sore arm heals up. I'll probably need to swap out the bars for something more ergonomic. Plus I'm in my downhill years. Don't sweat it. ...
