Over the past few weeks I've needed to move my seat post up about 2 inches. Since doing so, I've had much better legs, but I'm noticing that my hands are getting numb on rides of 30 minutes or more, which was not a problem before. I've also noticed some foot numbness since switching to clipless, and my elbow has ached since my 15 mile ride on Thursday.
I've had my LBS order me a stem riser (adjustable up to 3 inches) to put me a bit more upright and he thinks it will fix my hand issue. At least until I get my core strength up some more.
Do you guys think this is also a solution for my elbow and feet troubles, or should I look elsewhere?
I'm riding a 2009 Hardrock sport with flat bars.
