I did notice yesterday that you had some shiny new grips on. White weren't they? Brave!
Looks like a good grip pattern too for the wet & muddy trails around these parts.

They do have a good pattern, yeah. They're grey though. I wouldn't have chosen grey but they're a demo pair. Just hope I don't get too much pushback when I return them all Clyne tinted black....   8)

So I'd say that adjusting the pitch of the brake levers has definitely improved my positioning and control on the bike (maybe not on Trenchline though... :-D ). I'm more central inbetween the wheels it feels like now.

And the Revgrips are amazing. Totally eliminated the shooting pains and sore thumbs I used to get after rides.
