Anyone use gel tape on your bars?
Simple question; anyone use gel tape on your bars?
Now here is the bit were I tell you about my personal experience that might not be very germane to the question:
I have three spacers on my front fork. When I bought my bike about 4 years ago the bars were on top of the top spacer. As I was riding further I found I was getting pain in my lower back. I sniffed around the internet and started to adjust the seat and bars. Slowly I have raise the seat and moved the bars down one spacer at a time to put me in a more flat racing position rather than a seated mountain bike position. It has done the job and I now have less pain (at least I am in pain all over when I get past 80km.)
The thing is this is putting a lot more pressure through my hands, they are getting painful instead. I have developed new callouses on the outside/bottom of my index fingers (to go with my writing callous, raquet callous and paddling callouses)
Then I see this linky in one of my shop emailamebobs:
Recommendations? Worth a punt for the money?
