1) Buy a new handlebar (not in my budget right now)
2) Build up a "sweet-spot" on my existing handlebars.
I decided on option #2 after seeing a few Instructables that used a product called Sugru - quote from their website "sugru is the new self-setting rubber for fixing, modifying and improving your stuff."
So I decided to give it a try.
Step 1: Materials
1 - Bicycle requiring handlebar customization - mine was a Specialized Tarmac road bike with Forte carbon fiber hardlebars
2 - Sugru - I needed Qty 2 - 0.7oz packets
3 - latex gloves - may not be needed, depends on if you think you may be sensitive to the Sugru
4 - scissors
5 - Handlebar Tape (optional - depends on the condition of your existing tape)
