Morfe, bike guru
May 10, 2005, 10:58
Morfe,
I'm feeling pleased with myself (though knackered) since I cycled to work this morning, first time this year. I can put up with men with calves the size of my thighs zipping past me like I'm standing still. I can tolerate having five poxy gears and my bike being prehistoric. But some things just aren't right - can I ask you a few questions?
I suppose my knee ought to be utterly straight when my foot's at the bottom of the pedal - so I should raise the seat a bit? I seem a million miles from the handlebars (drop handlebars, but I can't use them like that because I'm scared) so I seem to be leaning down on my hands quite a bit, is that right?
Also, could you give me the website you mentioned before as a good place to buy stuff, as I think I'm going to have to be Sensible and buy some comfy cycling shorts with no seams. But not the really scary ones as my bum is too fat.
ta. You are very kind and inspiring.
Rhiannon
