How do you find the bars now when sitting? I find it a bit of reach sometimes and this puts weight on my wrists which I am not fussed on. Did the the risers bring them back much, or were you able to roll the bars back a little with the risers? Risers would be an easy fix and I was going to go that way but was concerned the bars were just too straight to be comfortable?
