So from all the great advice here, I've been trying to stand and squeeze more which has been helpful in reducing my death grip. I'm trying to let the bike push me through my legs. The problem I'm having is in whooped out sections under acceleration, the only way I can get power to the ground and keep the front end light is to lean back which requires the bike to pull me through my hard grip on the bars. This fatigues my hands /arms way fast. If I lean forward and let the bike push me, there's no way I can keep the front end light. I get all whooped out. Please advise me. Thanks so much.
