Today was also my first ride testing out my new Ergon Grips. I got the GX1's for the Fire Trail. I liked the green so I went with the team grip. These things are super comfy. I've always had a bit of a problem with my hands going numb and being sore but I think that these grips should take care of that problem. Riding with them really gives a different feel and the size is just perfect for my hand and for me to reach my shifters perfectly.
Last week I also got the Ergon Pack. It's also another great product this company puts out. It adjusts in several ways to get a perfect fit and the flink ball joint in the back gives me excellent movement. I bought the pack to take on some of the longer rides I'll go on where I may need to bring some extra gear with me or just when I'm commuting. I have a hydration bladder for it but won't use it very often since I don't race with a pack.
Now I better get to bed I'm meeting Ryan at 6:15 for some early morning gravel before I have to go to work at the shop and then a wedding after that. Later.
