Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

bike switch

Hey everyone! For the last several months, I had been using my dad's Trek hybrid as my primary bicycle for my daily rides(approx. 15-20 miles per day). Since I got my George Bush check in the mail, I went out and bought my very first road bike, a Jamis Ventura Sport! I could not be happier! Since I am a student, I was on a tighter budget than I would have liked, so I had to start with something more entry level. Anyhow, the point of this thread is about the pain I had been experiencing from riding the hybrid.

I was not properly fitted for it and I had chronic neck pain for weeks. Since I was properly fitted for my new bike, should those pains subside?
