Old enough to know better
Finally back into biking again after a year off and selling my old ride thinking I didnt want to ride anymore. Got bitten by the bug again this spring and ended up getting an 06 Tarmac Comp. Super sweet ride, real smooth and I love the way 10 spd shifts. Only compromise I had to make was they had no 58 cm in stock so I bought the 56 cm (technically a 56.5cm) I am 6 ft tall, and have average length arms legs & torso. By that I mean I don't have any one part of my body freakishly longer or shorter. The one real fit issue I ve been fighting has been pain in my elbows after say a 40 mile ride. I incur this pain while riding in the drops, it does not hurt while I ride in the drop but when I move out of the drops and bend my elbows. I do ride with my elbows bent so I know this pain is not from straight arms. Is it possible I need a longer stem to lengthen my reach? Any input is welcome and if you need any more info feel free to ask.
