The gloves are pearl izumi gel gloves. My saddle is an inch below handlebars and has no tilt up or down. The brake lever is set at a 45 degree angle. I don't know what "loading up fully flexed wrists" means.

Try to ride with your wrists straight and a little bend in the elbow. Let the elbows flex a little on the bumps.

I switched from flats to On-One Mary bars for a more neutral hand position and Ergons for grip.
I rode ten miles today with no gloves and a loose grip on the handlebars. I used the 9 and 3 position on the bumps and potholes hands feel good. The egron grips make my palm extend over the grips. 50-3095-NCL-TOP.jpg
This has nothing to do with my hands, I was unsure if I should start a new thread for it. Has anyone here seen or used these "Helios Bars" they look awesome.
