I think you just need to get some tyres more suited to your local road conditions - that and go up two wheel sizes and then come back down one. You will be all good then!
Car fitting - advice required
Please please please don't have your fitting done at NIssan, as a short arse they'll have you in one do those bloody Mira things. Most likely a purple one! Next thing you know it's a standard 22mph, Parking on blind corners, driving up a one way street the wrong way (and saying you are only going one way won't cut it) and generally causing MAYHEM to other road users. If you are lucky they may even throw in a 'prescription wind screen' which prevents you actually seeing your cycling brothers and sisters going about their RAD daily commute
Well, I've had a change of heart. After much thought, I'm going to consolidate my current fleet into one "do it all" vehicle. Anyone else done this?
Most of my driving is around the South, with a few big days out in the Lakes and the annual trip to the Alps.
At the top of the list so far is the Subaru Outback. I watched a man in one in town. He looked very comfortable, strong, brave and tall. I was surprised when he got out, as he was a similar height to me. I assume you must sit slightly higher in these?
He was with his wife and they were both wearing Subaru fleeces, which interests me since Ive currently got several Audi branded items including a jacket and a wrist watch.
Turn your steering wheel upside down to change the height. Also, try fitting tractor wheels to even out the bumps. Though it may cause an unhealthy obsession with future car purchases and wheel sizes with the delusion that anything smaller than tractor wheels are just for kids.
