Easing off your grip does though . As does use of the Cruise Control now and again

If you want to sit up make it a GTL not a GT.  On second thought. DONT DO IT AT ALL.

And we have a winner ....


If I don't like them I should at least be able to get my money back and maybe a bit more.
I was born with nothing and unfortunately I still have most of it left.

I was watching them, but decided i didn't need them, after playing with the bike ergonomics site here - http://cycle-ergo.com
or you would have had a bidding war  8)

Another thread I read had a theory that if you put risers on, you alter your seating position and put more pressure on your butt. One chap did some research and found the LC seat tilts forward and makes you put more pressure on your wrists. His answer was to undo the front seat bracket and put 2-3 washers on and then put the bolts back in, so actually raising the nose of the front of the seat a little. This he said improved comfort and only cost cents. The original bolts still fit as well as they are long enough.

Picked them up from the post office today. While I have no doubt that they are fantastically engineered but .... What the heck!!!


These are over £350 new.


Can anyone tell me what marketing strategy tells them that making people feel ripped off is a good one?

It must work as they sell plenty. Be interested to know how the install goes and what you think.

It was only because I got them at a good price that I had them. I was going to get the Illium works ones but figured that if these don't work out I should at least get my money back.

I know, as I said I considered bidding on them as well, but decided I didn't need them.
