In an effort to take some strain off my back and follow a principle in the Just Ride book, I have raised my handlebar. A lot.
Above is the before.
And the after.
A couple of years ago I had some terrible back spasms that rendered me immobile for at least an hour until I could move. Then it took about a week to recover and feel somewhat normal. I now can feel when it gets tired and is closer to spasming again, so I don’t push it.
I took the bike for a quick spin after work tonight. It’s a different feeling for sure!
