This might be a dumb question but does anyone have any recommendations on bartape for brevets? I'm changing my positions often and double wrapping my handlebars but still having some trouble with tingling/numbness in my hands. Anybody prefer bartape with gel padding or anything like that?Best,Jacob

I am continuing to have tingling at the ends of my fingers on my left hand from a 1,200 in May. I had transferred my bike fit measurements to my new bike and then fiddled with the seat height. The fitting height did not work (one long ride lead to a 40/60 power balance on the subsequent ride – aggravating an old injury in my left knee).
One person at PBP last month was using:
Has anyone else tried?
I have also gotten bruising on my left palm on 600s. One of my fellow riders suggested the bruising was at the glove seams.

Hi all, John D’Elia 1146 here-I have had numb feet and hands after every 1200 and even after some 600s. In fact I never spoke to anyone who didn’t have this in their hands after a 1200. I have adopted a much more upright position over the years and I’ve been able to lessen the hand issues but they never go away. It takes about a month for the feeling to come back and even then I have some residual issues with my hands. I think the gloves we are using really are not up to the task-have tried Grip Grab 6mm gel gloves and another little trick, Sting Pad Hot Glove pads-these are on Amazon, are little silicone pads that baseball catchers use-they come in different shapes but they are pretty cheap and easy to find, they have little rings that loop around your finger and you put your glove over them, and then you have a pretty nice thick shock absorber with the sting pad and the glove too, not a cure but it has helped me on some long rides. So this is my two cents’ worth. John
