I haven’t gotten out as much as I would have liked with the terrible weather we’ve been having, but it’s definitely feeling a lot better than before. I went on a 2-hr long ride this morning and aside from a little stiffness in my neck (nothing that wouldn’t occur from me just sitting at a computer for 2 hours), no problems whatsoever. This was also my first ride of that length for years – that new stem is doing wonders! I’m still having to remind myself quite often about fixing my hand position, but it is slowly becoming second nature.
The cleat adjustment is also perfect – I actually first tested them out when I visited my parents and the only bike they had that was fit to ride was my brother’s old soft-tail MTB. Even though that bike was all sorts of wrong for me, having the cleats fitted really helped. I haven’t had any knee pain or foot tingles since you adjusted them and put in the spacers in the left shoe. I will definitely be coming back when I inevitably need new shoes!
Overall, very happy with the bike fit and how everything is working out.
Thanks so much for all your help – it was a really great experience and I appreciate all the time you took to explain things and make me feel comfortable with the process.
