Ever been for a ride and come home with a sore back, pins & needles in you’re hands or a sore backside? Many of these problems can be easily fixed with just a few simple adjustments or the upgrading of certain parts of your bicycle that are better suited to your body shape and riding style.
A sore back can be caused for a number of reasons the most common being the incorrect height of the handlebars, the feeling of pins and needles in the hands can also be caused by incorrect handle bar height as it causes you to lean too far forward increasing the amount of pressure your hands apply to the bars. This can be easily fixed by adjusting the height of the handlebars or by the addition of items such as bar end extensions or a high rise stem both of which allow for more relaxed riding positions
Saddle sore? These days saddles come in a large variety of widths & styles and making sure you have the correct saddle for you’re body shape and type is very important. The biggest softest saddle isn’t necessarily the most comfortable because everyone’s body shape is different and using correct saddle will enable you to ride in greater comfort for longer.
