Just have to say a big thanks for bike fit, best thing I think I could have done and should have done it ages ago.
Managed to get out early this morning for a ‘test ride‘ of the new set up. It was strange, although we moved the seat post up quite a bit and rolled the bars back the bike felt just right. My hands seem to fall into position on to the hoods, normally I tend to shuffle them around a bit, not this morning.
Straight away I really noticed an increase in my cadence, an easy increase of 5 -10 rpm. As you mentioned I was able to select a bigger gear with no problems. Overall my average speed was up and on climbs I surprised myself by changing to a harder gear near the top, something I would never consider or have been able to do before.
I hoped the bike fit would not just consider how the bike was set but also how I can contribute and it passed my expectations. It is good to understand how my flexibility can affect my performance on the bike and this is something I can work on.
Really looking forward to getting some more miles in.
