Working out with a narrower grip

This is a followup to yesterday’s post: My shoulders hurt: Are my bars too wide?

Yesterday Dane at REVO Physiotherapy & Sports Performance showed me that 25 inches might be my maximum functional handlebar width for mountain biking. That’s interesting considering my bikes run 29-32 inches.

Today I checked my home workout setup and …

I do my home strength work using an 800mm handlebar with two grips. My hands always end up right between the two grips.

Today I put tape at the 25-inch mark:

WOW! That’s where my hands have been this whole time. It’s cool how your body will find its own way.

Next: Try narrower bars on my bikes!

Stay tuned.


Know more. Have more fun!
