  • For me, it’s more about the bar angle to provide a comfortable drop position, then the hoods go where they are most comfortable for you. I wouldn’t move them down as it would rotate my wrist away from my body; I’d want my wrist angle to be as neutral as possible in the hoods, which may require moving them up a bit. Up to you (excuse the pun).

  • That makes a lot of sense - I had to move the hoods significantly to get them comfortable like so^

    I also tend to have the habit of a fully in the drops position and a in the drops but on the brakes position which confuses matters (I assume that’s normal). I’m going to tape up like this and see.

  • Yeah, I definitely have a position at the rear of the drops that I go to sometimes, and then nestle in to the hook with a finger on the lever blades when in a tight scenario. All should be comfortable. I’d prioritise the drop position with brake access.

    I’m so glad there is now a forum for this type of nuanced bar angle discussion. Huge kudos to Hulsroy. Thread of the year IMO, and it’s only May.
