A lot of discomfort we have while riding can be solved by the right type of handlebar. It’s where your hands will be resting for hours at a time, so just like everything else on the bike, you need to take into account the type of riding you do and factors such as how flexible you are to govern the correct size of bar for you.
Simon guides you through the 3 main measurements you should look at – width, reach and drop – as well as the various shapes of bar that manufacturers offer.
