Im realizing that i need slightly adjustment of angle of my hoods (when im comfortable in hoods i dont have my maximum on my drops and vice versa....) It's just a tinny adjustment (but when i push hard or ride long distances (yesterday 182 km), i can feel that i need a litle adjustment.
I was doing Rettul Fitting year ago, and since then i changed handlebar. So first checking values i have from my fitting. For Grip Angle i have value of 36 deg.
But how i measure this angle? (In rettul data i have it say: Angle to Horizont, denotes front end). Since im using Campagnolo record 2015, to which part of the hoods im measuring this angle ?
TobinHatesYou wrote:That seems like a very drastic angle, but also might dependent on how tall the hoods are. My grip angle as measured by the Retul Zin wand is 9 degrees with tiny eTap hoods. My guess is it's measured from where the rubber meets the ramps to the top of the hoods.
Yes but that part is not a straight line, so it can be interpeted very different. Also i tried to measure downline of hoods (straight line, and it follow the line of the hoods.. But still not sure).
Maybe the best will be if i post pictures and line where we thin to be measured?
BTW, i just checked different Retul fitting settings.. Average Grip angle is about 30-35 deg. Never seen less then 25 deg.

But here's a snip of my retul report with some lines I drew on it.
Thanks a lot for ur reply..
I need help for two other parameters:
1. Grip Reach - Tip of Saddle horiz to front end of grip..
What is mean by front end of grip? The part before the high curve? Or the aboslute end of the hood just above the brake lever axle?
2. Grip Drop - Cen of saddle to front end of grip - denotes grip lower
Same question? What part of hood is considered as end of grip? The absolute end of the hood just above the brake lever axle or the part before the high curve?
Well I dont know how reliable the little picture is, but I assume it's to the highest point on the hood.
If it isn't ZINed to the highest point on the hood, then the measurements would be highly specific to the user/whoever ZINed the bike.
Yes, but still dont understund what is consedered as highest point on the hood. Is it grip part that u actually hold? Or absolute highest part?
So is it Black Arrow on picture im sending, or Red Arrow?
And another pic with bump that was hurting my hands, and wanted to readjust everthing mostly because of this:
If I use the BB-centre of bar reach from the ZIN, then measure the centre of bar to centre of hoods horizontally (where the centre is the highest point on the hood tip) I get the ZIN measurement of "grip reach" (within a few mm measuring error)

They read this thread and without even sending them an e-mail they email me with help how to properly measure all my Retul report values.
There is new and old software, and different ways of measuring the reach/drop of Grip based if fitter used new or old software.
I'll share all info i got on email, as soon as they confirm me the points i marked on the pictures i just send them.
Garrett and Todd from Specialized, thanks a lot again. This is what i say professional service.
Seem that i'll finally dial my fit properly, and hope this information they send me (as i said ill send it as soon as they confirm me my last e-mail), will help to other members here...

I had to go to a different bar because I found I like this bar section to be level with the ground. Also, your hands should rest behind that bump, not on it. Maybe the lever shape isn't good for your hands.
This is what im doing this days.. Riding a bike tapeless and trying to find perfect spot. And u say that hands should be rest "behind" that bump.. U mean in front of bump?
And can u please suggest me handlebar worh to test ?
