More Info on Bike Fit:

"Why Does Correct Bike Fit Feel Wrong?"

www.roadbikerider.com/ask-coach-fred

"When you're accustomed to riding in one position (even though it's "wrong") and then you alter everything (even though it's "right"), your body probably isn't going to be very happy. Worse, you could get injured.

When formulas -- such as those used by your shop or found in RBR eBooks including Andy Pruitt's Medical Guide for Cyclists and Watch Your Line -- call for significant changes, make them in small increments with several rides between."

More on bike fitting:

"Over the years, I have heard my share of bicycle fitting myths. It's hard not to be succumbed to them with the internet hosting blogs and videos on "how to fit your bike" by any person out there.

By understanding these misconceptions about bike fitting, you can learn how to avoid things that could be hampering your progress as a cyclist. You'll also understand the process and science behind bicycle fitting and its value to you, regardless of your riding ability."
