Hi, after messing with my stem, seat, and rise of handlebars, I realized (dumbly) that my left arm is about 2 cm shorter than my right fully extended. I broke my left arm so much as a kid, well, that is the way it healed.
It never clicked in my head that might be the reason I'm have ulnar compression and numbness so bad on my right side (duhhh). It makes sense now that my right hand is taking the brunt of the weight. I've been doing extended rides of 60 miles and up. Wanting to go touring this summer.
Here is what I did today.
I double wrapped my handlebar on the left side (standard Surly Cross Check drop bar). I'm guessing that this might help even out my reach? Maybe even triple wrap it, I don't care how 'dumb' it looks.
I'm up for most anything, do any of you guys have a suggestion that might be a 'duh' moment for me - something else practical I can do, etc? There are no 'pro' fitters anywhere around, I live in rural south. I don't mind a little tinkering, I'm just tryinging to think of something for my situation.
