Question about setup on the track (bar and stem positioning)
I am looking for input into my setup for the track. I am a newb so I bet at this point setup is not as important but I wanted to ask now anyways.
My old setup had a fair bit of spacers, a down oriented 17 degree thompson stem, and bullhorns to put me in the position I want for the street.
I am switching the setup for the track and am confused as what to do with my deda drop bar, the stem, and all those spacers (dont really want to cut the steering tube).
So far I flipped the stem, and dropped the stem down by moving some spacers above it. I rode this setup around the block and it was pretty comfortable.
So I know this is a personal choice... balancing aerodynamics and comfort. I am fairly flexible from three years of yoga practice so I could drop the bars quiet a bit.
What do people with track experience recommend that I do with the current setup?
