Ah, I coulda phrased that better I guess. re: DIY fit my question is which part should I start adjusting first, and what new parts if necessary might I need to buy to achieve a better fit.>How much do you currently (or aspire to) ride, in terms of distance per week or hours per week?
I've only had the bike for a couple days so it's just been half hour rides around my suburb. I do want to progress to longer rides around 20km one way or just riding more in general, maybe 8-10hrs/week.>is that because something hurts, or you feel like you're not in control?
Both. I feel like there's too much pressure on my hands, and my lower back feels kinda strained after riding around town for a bit, but I feel like that's partly due to me not being on a bike for a long time. Basically I don't know what feels "right" yet.>in what way does it feel like reducing the reach would help?
I think it'd make the bars feel lighter in my hands, in turn giving me more control by not feeling so stretched out. I know increasing bar height might be the way to go instead of just decreasing the reach overall, but as I said the spacers look to be maxed out, which is why I brought up a raised stem.
I do know I just need way more time in the saddle, but if there are things I can start adjusting on my own for a better experience I'd like to get that done.
