Is this normal when I'm on the drops???? whats everyone else like?

When riding on the top of the bars the front hub is obscured by the stem...

I have the correct ball of foot over pedal axle too..

Just wondered if my position is as per text book...

many thanks :)

    I think the "whether you can see the front hub" is a useless guide to positioning on the bike. It all depends on the geometry of the frame and the lenght of your arms and stem as to whether you can or can't. If you feel comfortable don't worry about it.
