Here is a basic step-by-step tutorial on how I set up my handlebar, brake levers, and grip positioning to achieve the perfect cockpit set up. (Shout out to my wife for filming this!)

Bonus Tip : Once you find your preferred set up and are comfortable, I would recommend marking the bar and lever positioning in a way that will allow you to find that setting again should you take your bike apart or need to change something out. I make small marks with a sharpie.
