|When I'm in the drops my thighs hit my abs. What's the easiest way to correct and be comfortable. I'm physically fit, but fairly new to this activity. Thanks. BD|

|raise the handlebars.
Now, when my legs hit my abs I know I'm as aerodynamic as I can be. I can't hold it for very long, but I've got an extended steering tube so that most of my riding is in a comfortable but not extremely aero position.
I am assuming that your saddle is at the correct height.

|When my gut hits the top tube, I really got a problem.
You could raise your bars, try a shorter stem, move your seat up and forward, or rotate your handle bars. A lot of this stuff is trial and error and if you're comfy where you are I wouldn't change anything. My first experiment, cause it's free and easy, is rotating the bars a little bit so you'll have a shorter reach to the drops and a longer reach to the hoods.
