Lower back pain

Recommended Posts

Hey all

 

I've got a 2012 RT.  It's the only bike that gives me a bit of pain in my lower back after an hour or so.

 

I got the handlebar risers and it's still not great.

 

Haven't had this issue on any of my several previous bikes or current others. 

 

Help? Should I just sell it? I love the bike otherwise but the problem happens every time.

What seat do you have on it?  I finally figured out that my back pain was seat related.

There're several causes to low back pain.  Some, I can push through on and it goes away.  Don't get it on my 2012 though.  Posture is a biggee contributor too.

Such a personal thing, and sometimes hard to find a solution....    My '17 RT took some trial & error effort to get rid of pain across my shoulder blades and rib cage.  End result was:

Russell Day Long seat

H'bar risers set more back than higher

Footpeg lowering kit

Seat in LOW position (even tho I'm 6'1")

Now, no pain on all-day rides!
