Re: Allergic to brake hoods?
« on: September 13, 2014, 01:43 »
The main reason this story is interesting to me though is that I usually prefer to ride without gloves (unless it's cold out). One problem with that though is that on longer rides, the rubber of the brake hoods often irritates the bare skin of my hands (although not in an allergic sense). I thought of wrapping bar tape around the hoods to provide a different surface/texture, but it never occurred to me remove the rubber altogether and wrap tape around the raw parts.

Anyone else have similar experiences or suggested solutions?
Besides suggesting that I wear gloves.  :shh  :D
