    Holy handlebar height Batman! :D I bet that certainly gives you a relaxed riding position.

    I need it I am an OLD man :)

    I can NEVER understand why people want to touch their front wheel when cycling, sit up, look around, relax,

    Its the same drive that makes you want to touch a spinning desk fan with your tongue, touch the fryingpan even though you know its hot and lick the top of Square batteries

    An arched back while riding means the vertebrae should support each other if your angle is correct. While riding more 'relaxed' hire bikes on holiday I've found they cause me more back pain as all my weight is being supported by my lower back, rather that being spread out along the spine.

    All depends what issues you may or may not have I guess, but for my lower back pain, a nice arched back is better than being more upright.

    Horses for courses really. Some enjoy the scenic aspect of cycling, others want to push themselves to go as far and as fast as they can. An xc whippet in spandex with shaved legs would probably look a little out of place on your bike haha.

    At 60 if I shaved my legs I would need Nora Batties stockings
