Alright! Todays ride with the saddle in the forward position and another 5mm spacer under the stem felt much better than yesterdays ride in a more aggressive position so I think I'm going in the right direction. I wasn't completely painless but this time the pain started to set in much later at around an hour mark while yesterday I felt the pain creeping in after 20min or so. I also had no issues with numbness in my hands so the forward saddle position doesn't seem to have any negative side effects. So, I gonna test this position a bit longer and if it stays that way I may try the shorter handlebar. Btw, 42cm definitely is too narrow for my taste - so would you recommend a 44 or should I go straight up to 46?
