Titec H-Bars Redux


My ulnar nerve injury on the Dempster motivated me to revamp my Big Dummy's bar padding. The primary new addition is a set of modified Ergon Grips. As you can see I had to chop off quite a lot of the right grip to allow it to fit on the bar with the Rohloff shifter. I also added a double layer of cork tape [camouflage of course!] to the other portions of the bars. Time will tell if this solves the problem, but I'm hopeful.

You're going to love the Ergons. I'm using them with a Rivendell Dove Bar on my Big Dummy. I've used them for 3 years now with zero numbness in my hands.

Pretty hacked up, but should still work well. One tip, point the trailing edge almost towards your elbows. If you put them too flat, your wrists bend. I got mine really well adjusted when I had hurt my wrist at work.

How well does your right hand fit?

Tor,

My right hand fits find on the combination of the Rohloff shifter and Ergon grip.
