Subject: Bike fit help needed
Looking for some advice as to setup my bike. Recently did a 70.3 and felt that i was "jumping" up and down a lot in the saddle. Whats your take on my position?

not a great picture, a video of you on the trainer would help show a lot more.

That said, you are sitting up quite high. (that is, not aerodynamic) saddle may also be low, but it's very hard to tell from that picture.

Have you had a bike fit? If no, it should be at the top of your list. If yes, you should go get a refund.

Could be a couple of things... In terms of fit, more then likely saddle position too high and/or too far back. Could also be pedaling technique or excessively high cadence (especially if you ride a really light gear which tends to make you bounce, you need some resistance).

The photo didn't load for me, so I can't comment on general fit.

I am in the market for a new road bike, at several local bike stores I will test ride several bikes. Other than basic fit and components, how should I compare them while doing a test ride?

I can run and swim with no problems but when I get on the bike my hamstring starts to tighten up. I had my bike fitted in January and the problem seemed fine until I got out on the roads recently.
