Short Rider | Knee Position
So I've been experimenting with a lot of body position on my bike, and came across some issues.
I notice the bike rotates/turns a lot easier with my butt back in the seat or a fist's distance away from the tank, but my knees have a much more difficult time locking onto the tank whether I am coming to a hard stop/preparing for a turn. I feel a lot of the difficulty comes from shorter legs than others (my guess), which leads me to locking onto the tank with my actual knees as opposed to knees w/ inner thigh.
I'm curious to see if other short riders have struggled with this issue, and how effective adjustable rearsets have been for those when it comes to an improvement on knee placement.
Thoughts? Suggestions? BTW I'm 5'5"
