Ok folks....this one is a bit strange so I'd like to hear if anyone else has experienced the same. Just like everyone, I adjusted my handlebars down so that I could see the mirrors. Then after some long rides I started having pain on the inside of my left elbow...classic golfer's elbow even though I only play golf about one time a year. Then it started to get worse and showed up on even short rides. I analyzed my arm position and it seemed correct: arms relaxed and bent slightly. Got so bad I was stretching my arm about every 3 miles. So...I tried an experiment. I moved the handlebars back up so that now my arms are fully extended when I ride. I took a long trip through the countryside on Sunday and the elbow problem vanished, gone, kaput. Of course my mirrors are not so clear now but I have nice ones on the bars so it is not a problem. Is it possible that the much maligned CTX handlebars are more ergonomically correct in the up position, the position suggested by factory specs?
