Since a "long" (5-6 mile/40 minute/pretty intense effort) ride the other week, I've had numbness in the tip of my left ring finger, whenever I ride. It mostly gets better between rides, and I've read that this can happen from nerve compression/leaning too hard on the handlebars, so I'm trying to figure out how to not do that.
I've had to raise my seat to the point that it's level with the handlebars - about 4" of seatpost showing on my Raleigh Venture. Will raising the handlebars help? I'm also practicing riding one-handed, in hopes that doing so will force me to strengthen my core muscles, which I'd think will also help.
Does anyone else have experience with this? What did you do to solve it?
