I took up cycling 2 years ago to help with arthritis in both knee, and its really helped and i have fallen in love with cycling. i started out on a 2016 Giant Defy 1, had a bike fit to iron out a few niggles mainly the saddle. swapped to a selle smp Well and all is well. I sometimes have numb hands but this is hit and miss
The defy has served me well but the call of carbon and an up grade bit at Christmas.... i bought a Canyon CF Endurace. looked at the sizes and geometery and its seams to match( reach and stack). I swapped the measurements over to the canyon, but i am suffering with shoulder and neck ache. i have flipped the stem to help raise the front end but it did not improve. so the saddle has been moved back slightly to try and move the center of gravity and moved the hoods up abit, but i am still suffering after around 20 miles, concerntrating on relaxing the shoulders.
so i have now flipped the stem back to normal, taking the approch that may be i'm to cramped and looking at trying a longer stem.....
am i missing anything?
is there anything else i could try, before i throw more money for another bike fit...
thanks in advance.
