Fitted the pizza rack & SPDs to the Trek yesterday, did a relaxed Epping forest ride with a pal with a bit of towpath action at the end of the day
The 60mm stem hasn't arrived yet, but I'd moved the seat as far forward as possible and readjusted the handlebar/lever position which definitely helped with not feeling so stretched out. Worryingly, my wrist became pretty painful towards the end of the day and is still pretty sore today. Reserving judgment til I've tried the shorter stem and possibly some cushy gloves or gel pads under the tape, but still slightly worried the frame's just too long for drop bars and trying to make it work will just be playing bike fit whack-a-mole.
On a positive note, got 'nice biked' by someone yesterday evening on a lovely black surly in Tottenham marshes, possibly 'on here'? Nothing lifts the spirits like spontaneous IRL bike approval from strangers
