Newbie seeks advice
got my first road bike just under a year ago - a Raleigh Stratos of very uncertain vintage but it was only £100 which turned out to be good value because not withstanding the fact that it was rather on the large side for a guy who is only 5' 10" it did a few thousand miles in that year adn I'm very fond of it. However, yesterday I moved into the 21st century with a Vitus Zenium and discovered how easy life can be when your not pushing pounds of steel uphill. However one thing puzzling me; I have never found the drops a natural position before but yesterday the reverse was true and on 30 mile run I did about 29 on the drops because it just seemed the natural positon whereas riding on the hoods seemed kind of awkward. Is this normal or is the stem maybe too high? Thoughts welcome.
