Five things I learned from my Fit Kit session on Friday:

  1. My current bike’s top tube is 2.5 cm too long.
  2. I’m sitting way too far behind the bottom bracket. Blame a too-slack seat tube angle and saddle that’s pushed back on the rails.
  3. My bars could stand to be every so slightly narrower.
  4. I ride with my saddle about 2 cm too low.
  5. I need shorter cranks.

Next step: Turn those measurements, and the shop’s experience, into a new bike.
