Bike fit help: Lower Back Pain...
Quote | Reply
Hi All - I wanted to reach out to the community and see if there is anyone who could provide some guidance here on my fit.

The background: Had a 61cm Trek Madone that the fit was great on... never had any issues with the fit but when i got my new 3T Exploro (size XL), i replicated those fit coordinates and have had the worst back pain from riding. I am looking to see if anyone has any has advice on easy solutions to help mitigate this problem. Im hoping the bike not just flat out too small but all input is welcome!

Thanks all.

Not an expert, but my first reaction of photo (before reading text) was "That bike looks small for him".

But, if the fit is same as the other bike that is kinda weird.

Are tires too highly inflated?

I don't consider myself an expert, but... It looks kind of like you're elbows are a bit rigid, but not quite locked out. I'm wondering if you're pushing yourself backwards with rigid elbows and thus arching your lower back. Try relaxing the elbows.

But if the last bike felt great, but this one causes problems, then it almost has to be that something was lost in the transition from one to the other. The position must not have been duplicated exactly.
