small hands , small lady - how do I reach the breaks??
Are there any ladies out there with tiny hands that have overcome the difficulty of controlling the brakes without having to reach for the drop every time? I bought a Giant OCR in 2007 and have hardly ridden it due to lack of confidence. My main problem is the reaching of the brakes from the top of the levers. I can control them from the drops but I don't feel as confident riding this way. The bike I have isn't a women's specific, just a size small. I'm only 5ft tall so it is a small bike. I've had a few bits and bobs changed but none that make any difference. It is the Shimano sora flightdeck and I have had an extra spacer fitted but still no joy! Before I put the bike on ebay, I'd like to give this one more try and look for advise. If anyone has any suggestions, I'd really like to hear them.
