Coming at 'cross from short-track, I'm riding a mountain bike with a Misfit Psycles (http://www.psyclestore.com
) FU2-bar, basically a flat bar with some rise and more sweep than traditional atb bars. Since mountain bikes are permitted in my loca cross races and sicne I am not very comfortable on drops, I'm racing with the FU2-bar for 'cross.
Question: my bike is fully-rigid SS and my hands are getting a little beaten up. Currently using a Serfas mtn grip with a padded glove and it's merely okay but I'm sure I can do better. Anyone else out there racing on flat bars and what do you like for grips?
