I bought my first road bike earlier this summer. As a dyed-in-the-wool mountain biker, I'd always viewed lycra-clad roadies with a certain suspicion, but I have to admit that I really enjoy it. I even entered my first race, doing what I guess constitutes a 25 mile TT last Saturday, as the bike leg of the Olympic Team Relay at the London Triathlon.
Anyway, I've been finding that about an hour into any hard ride, I start to develop lower back pain. It may simply be that I'm still not used to the different riding position, but thought I'd check on here to see if there's anything obviously not right with the way I'm positioned on the bike. Here's a pic, from the aforementioned triathlon:
Does that look okay? I suspect the saddle might be a bit low - I'm going to try raising it further for tomorrow's ride - but anything else?
Any help much appreciated.
