If it's a new bike but ye guy has decent previous mileage I'd say yes - but o' course
if it's his first ever road bike it may just be a case o' getting used to ye position
and adapting (people who've only mtb'd seem to suffer this - ye more upright position means ye don't need ye core strength, so tend to slouch on a road bike taking far too much weight on their hands)
