    Tweak the bike?

    I've been riding alot this season (my first season - hence the reason for posting in the beginners corner), on a 29r. I really like it and for the most part I'm pretty comfortable on it, but I feel like I might be able to tweak the bike slightly to get a better feel for it - "to be at one with the bike". Any advice on what I might want to try to tweak on the bike? or not tweak for that matter? I like going, and I do support my LBS, but its like a 2 hour round trip, plus I would like to learn how to "tweak" my bike myself...
    Also just recently got clip-in pedals...right now, the cleat on the bottom of my shoes are all the way forward, what are the advantages to having the celats all the way forward or should I move them back away from the toe?

    there are a few things you can do to get a better fit. Try different length and angle stems or riser bars vs flat bars and check your seat height. here is a good place to start - Fit Calculator
