Probably the best way to adjust the bike is to have someone look at your riding posture. If you are too hunched over, raise the handlebars. If you are reaching too far forward, rotate the handlebars back. If the stride length is too long, shorten it on our long- and compact-stride bikes. What you’ll find is that there is a wide range of potentially comfortable configurations for any one rider and finding the optimal riding configuration can be done pretty quickly.
