Subject: Helping me adjust my aero position

Can you comment on my aero position pictures?
I made 2 videos, one with towels on my aerobars, one without.

I generally have problems with the saddle, this is the 3rd one. My thumbs up pictures are saying I feel comfortable sitting.
Any help will do.

p.s. my back unfortunately is not very flexible.

Need pictures at the bottom of your pedal stroke to offer better advice.

Your position in the last picture is way better than the others.  You're too stretched out and too far back on the saddle in the other pics.  Which one is more true to the way you ride?

Oh, couldn't get the pedal stroke in the frame...I feel the most comfortable in those two with thumbs up... but just looking at them I see my back is hurting.

On the other hand, in the last one I am slightly forward on the saddle, which makes me feel completely uncomfortable. As far as saddles are concerned, I am using Specialized Avatar.

Take photos somewhere else to get all of you and pedal at bottom of stroke plus try to have it more square to you. Outside maybe if you need more space.

I am racing in the Florida Ironman. My question is this: which position is going to be better for me to ride in, the aero position or the traditional road position?

What should I consider when adding aero bars? What are good brands? Are there pitfalls to be aware of? How can I adjust them to fit me?

The correct cleat orientation and float for a rider is dependent on their individual foot, pedaling mechanics, and cleat position.

I went in for a fitting because I had been having chronic stabbing pain in my shoulder/neck whenever I ride for more than 30 minutes. I'm planning a half Ironman this summer, any help for this?

When I switch one wheelset for another, the rear derailleur needs to be adjusted because the rear wheel on each holds the cassette in a different position. Where do I start?

How often should you have a bike tune up and what should be included? Is it unreasonable to expect a refitting as part of the tune up?
