I can ride my Mtn bike for an hour with minimal hand cramping. My new Trek 1.5T starts giving me hand cramps about 15-20 minutes into the ride. I am sure it is the extra weight from leaning forward more.
Is this something that will build tolerance as I do it more? I found myself popping up and putting my hands on the crossbar a lot to ease this. I'm not even using the lower part of the bars. I have my hands forward to use the shifters. I am also using Gel gloves to try and ease this.
