Does anyone have any pointers on reducing lower back pain on MTB descents? I use attack position, elbows out, knees bent, but by the end of my descent my back is killing me. Would a slightly longer stem possibly help? I was thinking by stretching out a little further my back wouldn't be bent at such an angle. I'm starting to think my next MTB will be a longer, lower sprung 29er.
