My shoulders have been killing me when I ride. It's not been how long my butt or legs can last, but rather how long can I take the shoulder pain. I have a Cannondale with the traditional geometry. The most comfortable position for my shoulders is hands on drops. On the hoods burns after twenty minutes. Thoughts/solutions?

Biggest improvement of all time in my bike comfort. As always with an adjustment like this do a series of small ones, not one big one.

If I have my seat set up so that it "looks" like it is level, my weight is actually being shifted too far forward. This puts more weight on my hands and shoulders, and less on my sit bone. Tilting the nose up a bit allows me to shift the weight to the seat and takes pressure off the shoulders.
