Hallo everyone, Dave here. Just thought I'd pass on a suggestion that worke d for me in the 50's. If you are experiencing hand jarring on lumpy roads, try the following. Re-tape your bars, first put a length of inner tube over bars and then tape over it, up or down. Instant padding and a big reduct ion in the jarring and a big improvement in the comfort stakes
