First time test riding a road bike yesterday after years on ATBs. Loved it.
But when powering up a hill I'm used to standing up. So did that instinctively, and immediately found I had to sit back down because the steering became like a unicycle - guessing my CofG was a way forwards of the steering axis.
Is this that
- the specific bike I was riding is the wrong size for me?
- I just can't do that on road bikes?
- I can do that, but need to learn a different position to what works on an ATB?
