What Cooper said. I followed the usual fit guides slavishly for decades, and I was never really comfortable--I thought suffering just went with being a cyclist. Around the time I turned 50 (and bought a midlife crisis bike from Rivendell), I incorporated some of Grant's recommendations with some ideas of my own and instantly could stay on the bike longer and ride farther. Twenty-year-olds often offer me advice on how to go faster--lower the bars, get a better pedal system, ditch the big heavy Brooks saddle, whatever. Been there, done that--I'm just happy to be riding.
