Not odd at all.

You surely have longer arms than I, allowing you to shift back more thus leaving more room between you and the front of the bike. I needed to lean forward and thus felt cramped. Also, one of the things about many bikes (for me) is after leaning forward for more than a short while, my wrists ache and my hands get numb.

One of the things I loved about the Silverwing and Reflex is the long handlebars that allowed me to sit more upright.

Comfort on a bike is affected by many things - including a person's physical makeup. I happen to have herniated disks in my neck and back making certain seating positions quite painful. So it is difficult for me to find bikes/scoots that work well of me. Lucky, I enjoy trying lots of new stuff so buying/selling/trying new bikes is a hobby I love.

The TU is a fun bike and I'm glad it works for you. Enjoy!!
