I usually ride predominantly for a short commute of six or seven miles round trip, but am interested in going farther, faster for exercise/fun/excitement, maybe even some sprint triathalons or something. But, most of the time, when I go much longer than 45-60 min on my Kona Dew Deluxe, my hands and elbows get numb and sore. Any silver bullets? I'm also considering dropping a load of cash for a new bike, possibly a recumbent trike for the commute + exercise, but am nervous (will I be comfortable?, will I use it enough?, etc). The only recumbent riding I've done is brief rides on stationary recumbents and I think I've experienced the 'recumbent butt' I believe it's called. Should I try to adjust the existing bike (I already have 1500+ miles on it), buy a good fitting road bike (or something), or will a recumbent solve all my problems?
