Flipping the stem of the trek made a world of difference this week during the weekly lunch rides. I didn't realize how different the position would feel after I completed the procedure last Tuesday. The bike felt completely different to ride. I felt as if it was a smaller bicycle, just from the lower hand position. I also felt as if my legs were a little more bent during the crank revolutions. I raised the seat about a quarter of an inch today before lunch and felt better with my legs. I think I will keep this new position throughout the winter riding season and see if I feel like riding like this in my next century.
