Went on a long ride last night and my shoulders (which are usually a point of muscle tension anyway) are in pain right now. Nothing too wild, they just hurt.
Right now I have stock drops (don't like the shape), and I know I want something else. Tried my friend's flat bars and liked them, but it's not on my bike. I also want to raise my seat but I feel like being higher will only strain my shoulder point a bit more.
Don't have the budget to be changing my handlebars whenever I'm sore the next day, so I want to settle in on what handlebars I may wanna grab in the future.
Just wanna know what has worked for y'all, preferences, suggestions. Had my bike for a few months and now I'm really focusing on the tweaks that'll make my ride more comfortable. ( I know every component makes a difference just trying to work with what I have)
