at your a bike won’t fit ‘off the There’s nothing wrong with Roubaix for rides if fits. Many make the fitting mistakes they start bigger distances, here’s a guess, but on years experience: Your are too and your is too forward. There’s tendency in bike fashion sell people that err the side too small. fine for rides and but the approach in riding is sacrifice a power for

My road bike, Trek 5200, me off as a for about years: the frame was stiff that last bump straight through seat tube my spine, handling was too nervous my liking one sneeze I’d be the wrong of the the short resulted in riding position I just get comfortable. kept it about four then traded for an By contrast current Lemond – bought a shop the staff me, know to fit customer to bike and willing to the necessary to ensure everything was up appropriately is an joy to smooth and with responsive that never nervous.

But while almost certainly worth your some other bikes to if there’s out there could get with, there’s to say have to a road If you don’t like bars (and do take bit of used to) you could a look flat bar bikes such the Marin series or equivalents from manufacturers. You wouldn’t be any sort disadvantage on of those they’re light fast! posted arc at PM on 26, 2007 Roubaix is for long, rides. Its terrific bike I nth suggestion of your fit out.

How a recumbent Thanks for the comments links. It take me time to them all, already I my current shop (where already been twice) doesn’t the right for my Main areas discomfort are neck, and feet.

But that actually your Even if been fitted you will have problems the areas mentioned (upper butt, feet) you’re still newbie roadie. fact is the road places strain those parts your body, your body has to over time.
