Handlebar Science ?
--- Has anyone published a study on the efficacy of various positions of the handlebar grips in relation to the stempost? In some bikes the grips are well -behind- the stem, in others the handgrips are ahead of the stem. Seems to me the best leverage and control is to have the stempost in a straight line -between- the handgrips.
Any opinions based upon experience?
