Top 5 tips for riding over cobbles

April 7, 2013

Orica-GreenEDGE’s Mitch Docker and Fumy Beppu give us their top 5 tips for riding over the cobbles:

  • Double tape your bars and don’t grip too tight
  • Reliable, strong, 32-spoke old school wheels
  • 28mm tyres at 6 bar (87 psi)
  • Sit back on the saddle and let the front wheel coast
  • Ride the smoothest line, either along the side or straight down the middle
