Our Daily Cycling Tip

Don't Compromise Seat Position To Improve Reach - Sometimes, if it feels like the handlebars are too far away (or too confining), you might be tempted to slide the seat forward to reduce the reach. Don't do it! This might solve the reach problem. But, to minimize injury risks and maximize pedal power, seat position must be based on your relationship to the pedals. So, you can cause problems if you move the seat to solve the reach issue. The correct solution is to leave the seat alone (assuming its position is correct) and change the stem (the part that holds the handlebars) for a shorter (or longer) one. We can help if you need to make changes.
