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

No doubt, take it easy. People ride different saddles for different reasons.

Kinda. The bars were assembled that way from the store; I played with the stem and risers 'til it felt comfortable. This works for me, but as my flexibility has improved lately, I will probably change things up soon. Don't want to do it just yet, though.

Makes sense. I'd suggest slowly rotating the bars down.

Thanks for the suggestion. I think they'll end up that way, anyway! It feels good now, but I always kinda thought they looked a bit strange like that.

It's just the angle and the -17 degree stem, the setup is nothing crazy.

Those crazy setups are an East Coast thing!! =]
