Your issue could be the where you are sitting (on a long ride one will find several places to sit, forward and back - one cant sit on a thing the size of a bar stool all day and claim recliner comfort!). I would guess though that shoulder and arm are more ergo related .

Looking at the construction of the Russel, I dont believe that there is much they can do.
I believe that ergo's have become a part of it, although it wasn't a problem before. The best I can figure is to move the pocket forward, and one way or another stop the slide-forward somehow. Maybe angle it back some, I don't know.

It feels like moving the bars back a few inches would get the Bike back to where it was, so logically I should try to move myself forward. As you know the Russell plants you in one spot and doesn't allow the movement of most other seats.
