Advice on Olmo

edited January 2011 in Road buying advice
Last year I bought one of these:

It's light, quick, smooth, and cripples my wrists after only an hour. I had it fitted so I'm sure that, due to pins and plates in my wrists and forearms, it's never going to be a comfortable bike for me.

I'd appreciate any suggestions on what might be my best alternative to a road bike (I ride rural roads for the most part) - a hybrid or tourer?

Would I be better off selling the Olmo privately, or trying to p/x it?

    Before ditching the bike, try fitting some decent 25mm tyres, padded bar tape and don't pump the tyres up so hard. Michelin Krylions are fairly tough but supple enough to give a comfortable ride.
    Make mine an Italian, with Campagnolo on the side..
