When I bought my Wee I found that I had discomfort associated with the placement of the handlebars.
I added Genmar 1up 1back bar risers which seemed to help somewhat.
As a began to ride more miles on this bike I began to notice that the saddle was uncomfortable.
I tried several different aftermarket saddles and eventually ended up with a Russell Day Long. The saddle arrived late last fall. I was able to get some rides in on this saddle before the winter months. Now that the weather has changed I have been able to go for some longer rides this spring.
It is a very comfortable saddle and it changed my riding position significantly.
I noticed that I am now more forward on the bike and that my ears are above my shoulders and my shouders are above my hips and my hips are above my ankle bones - perfect posture position.
The other thing that I noticed was that the saddle is about an inch or so higher than the stock saddle.
I don't have any issues with the higher saddle height when I come to a stop but I do notice that I am still reaching for the handlebars. So much that I really have to rotate my shoulders forward to reach the bars while I'm riding.
This position is ok for a short trip but becomes intorable for any long distances. I keep getting a spasm between the top of my shoulder blades/base of neck.
When I'm not riding (or working) I also swim competitivly. Rounded forward shoulders are a no-no when it comes to swimming and shoudler stability and most swimmers (as do I) spend a lot of time in the gym with weight training to prevent rounded forward shoulders.
My questions are:
How much further can the bars come back?
Do Rox Risers come back further than GenMar 1up-1back?
What other brand is available that provide a longer reach back?
Where would I source longer cables and hoses?
Should I be looking for another bike?
Any input or advise is greatly appreciated.
