During a recent bike fit I had complained that my existing handlebars didn't seem to have a sweet-spot behind the brake hoods. The curve of the handlebars, as they started to sweep forward, dipped downward. Tipping the handlebars up wasn't an option, if I wanted to be able to use the drops. So I had two options:
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.
