When riding with only one hand on the bar...
Hello everybody. I searched this topic but didn't find any related discussions.
When riding with only one hand on the bar, such as when you reach for your bottle and drink, where is the best place to hold the bar? On top or on the brake lever?
I've always thought that it's best to hold the bar on top, near the center/stem, mainly because if you hit a bump, you are less likely to cause a wobble. Also, I feel that braking with only one hand on the bar is risky because the load on the bar is not balanced.
So, how many of you agree?
