Which way to adjust captain's reach?
The last few rides, I've felt that my reach to the handlbars is longer than I feel comfortable with...I'm 5'10" and it's a medium Burley Rumba with adequate standover height. My single bike, a 56 cm Trek 1000 has a more comfortable reach distance using its stock parts, and I'd like to come closer to matching it.
If I'm holding the bar tops, I see the axle quite a bit inside the bars. If I'm on the hoods, the axle is still a bit inside the bars. I don't use the drops much.
The seat is on a post with some setback and it's slightly forward of being centered over the seat bracket. This was, I think, the last year that Burley used a quill stem instead of threadless, so I have some height adjustment.
I've thought of three solutions:
#1, Move the seat farther forward, so that it's more centered over the post instead of the bracket. That would move it most of the way forward.
#2, Raise the bars...they're now just a bit below the seat level.
#3, Replace the stem, which would require a new part plus some time to remove things from one side of the bar to side it out.
