As title. I suffer from numb hands and a change of bars has been suggested. I can get 760mm Spank Vibrocore bars for £50ish and was wondering if it's worth the spend?

    Only way is to try them, but we don't know the cause of your number hands.

    Could be bars are too low so there is a lot of weight on you hands.

    Is the numbness caused by vibration or duration, ie you ride a lot g time of. Smooth terrain

    Where is the numbness


    Do you have e suspension forks?

    Tried gel padded gloves

    They arrived today so I should have them fitted ready for testing at the weekend.

    And, how was the test?
  • Carbon bars are good for vibration reduction.

    Ergon GP1 grips are good for reducing pressure on the hands. You've got to get the angle spot on though, and it might be different for each hand.

    Have you tried some ergon grips but also some padded gloves?

    Definitely better than standard bars. I was also usung Absolute Black silicone grips but they wore out so I put the Trek grips back on; horrible by comparison.

    Yes. Didn't get on with the grips.
