    Bike suspension

    Hello
    New to the site but wanted advice on the new gadget I have seen advertised(dont want to use the trade name in case I got into trouble).
    It is fixed onto the bike on the handle bar to provide a bit of cushioning/suspension when going over lumps & bumps on rides. I get quite sore thumbs & elbows after these sort of rides as I suffer from some arthritis. It looks good & would pay for it but wanted to hear what others say if they have seen it or have one.
    Thanks
    Captain

    I didn't get which type of bike you are riding. I had one once on a bike and it worked well but it wasn't a road bike. I too have major problems with my hands and what has worked for me is the very expensive Rapha gloves used by Sky. The padding really works and I come off a 2hr road with no pain in my hand. So take a look at your gloves and the grips on the bike.

    Thanks wknight. I have a hybrid not a road bike so the suspension might work but I will look at the gloves as well.
