Characteristic for the CycleFit advised position is the stretched position. This position is suitable for mid and long distances and unburdens the wrist, neck, and spinal column. Many have neck problems due to incorrect saddle position complaints that can be directly related to too short bikes. CycleFit advises a long forward stretched position. Stretching the back will unburden the neck and lower back. In addition, a stretched back leads to the enlargement of the thorax. This will lead to a increase of oxygen intake. Also, the more forward overturned position of the pelvis creates more stability. Finally, this position is more aerodynamic.
