Thanks for the info, Kyle. I think I was leaning a bit too far forward, because my back felt better when I sat upright and just held the grips lightly, but I couldn't keep that posture long. For my next ride I'm going to lift the stem up and rotate the bars to bring the grips just a bit closer to me.

I think the trail you rode was a few hours farther north from where I was.

Another nice ride up north, starting just before sunrise. 30 miles out and back on the North Bend Rail Trail. After this pic was taken, I adjusted the stem upward about 20 degrees, and rotated the bars forward so my grips were flat. Made a huge difference in my comfort level. There were several long climbs going in each direction, and they gave me no problem.

It's amazing what a difference relatively small adjustments make to ride comfort and control. I used to ride up to 160km occasionally and set up my now 13 year old bike up with that in mind. It's still a joy to ride and never needs any alignment tweaked.
