I post rarely but read often and would appreciate any suggestions that can be offered on how to deal with fingers that go numb or have a tingling sensation from riding. The pinky and ring fingers on my left hand go numb and stay numb throughout the day or night after a morning or afternoon ride. I have no problem with any other digits. My ride is a Trek 820 MTB, and I ride on the bumpy, pot-hole riddled roads of New Orleans about 10-12 miles a day and another 5-8 miles a day on a smooth path. The MTB does have a front shock, and the handle bar grips are pretty new. I do not wear gloves while riding.
It is safe to say I "commute" by bicycle. I go most every where in the city by bicycle since Katrina and am very happy about this change in lifestyle. Thanks in advance for any suggestions.
