We all love shiny new bike bits, but what have you bolted to your bike in the last 12 months that has made the biggest difference, something that perhaps you couldn’t now ride without?
I’ll start with TOGS (Thumb Over Grip System). I have been aware of these for years but it wasn’t until the guys on the podcast mentioned them that I decided to give them a try. I’ve fitted them to both my mountain bikes, both of which are ridden and raced in marathon races. They offer the perfect hook/rest for my thumbs in a position I quite often find myself riding in. This offers more control, leverage and a more sustainable alternative hand position on longer rides and races. Highly recommended!
