My hands dont fit on the grips properly, advice needed.
I recently bought a trek mountain bike that cost £900 and just been out on my first ride and the gears get in the way of me putting my hands around the grips, no problem move my hands up and then they hang over the edge and riding was very uncomfortable. I was out with friends and tried their bikes without problem. I really need to sort this out, what can be done. I was going to try and move the gears and brakes down the handle bars but it is very hard to put the brakes on, can I get extensions, I can't see getting longer grips helping as there is no handle bar for them to grip to. Any advice at all would be welocme, even if it means taking it into a bike shop as I can't ride it again the way it is set up.
