- Different grips?- aching hands. Do I need narrower or fatter grips?!
If it's between the thumb and the index finger, it may not be the grips. Which fingers do you use for braking? You could try changing the way you grip things generally. It's a very western idea of thing a strong grip is strangling something between the thumb and index finger where some cultures grip across the palm and attach using the little finger first (if that doesn't make sense, ask a Japanese swordsman)
However, I think the Lizard skins are quite narrow. Oury make some rather fat ones.Posted 10 years ago
Foam grips- from the deepest/darkest recessing of my memory I remember them being recommended in MBUK/MBR for comfort! Thank youPosted 10 years agobadfinkMember
I had really bad hand ache with the grips that came stock on my Reign X. the thin grips meant my hands would cramp up halfway through hairy downhill sections, and generally make it very difficult to hold on.
Swapped to some ODI Rogue Lock-Ons and haven't had a problem since. I also bought some Oury's, which feel lovely, but I found them just a little too squidgy.Posted 10 years agokimbersSubscriber

I would try moving your bars a few degrees forwards or more likly back,makes a hudge difference to pressure points on your hands.
Looking along the side of the bar I prefer a five to eleven position. all imho of course.
You know such a simple suggestion but its a new build and I've gone from a longer toptube to a slight-smidgen shorter yet kept the bars at exactly the same angle. Will play with the angle – thank you.
Edit hard to tell from the pic but they are slightly fwd. I always thought slightly more fwd helped with stability/control at faster speeds?Posted 10 years ago
