I recently injured myself (gee who would have thought that rolling paint for five weekends in a row along with maintaining a training schedule would cause pain??) Now I have numbness in my pinky and ring fingers (Ulner Nerve compression - I HOPE not entrapment!!!) It is beginning to resolve and I may get a shot of cortisone to speed things along.
My question is this - Does anyone out there know if using an Aero Bar will reduce the risk of Medila or Ulner nerve injury? It seems to me that it should simply because you are resting on your forearm and not taking quite as much weight on your wrists.
I wanted to get some advice before fitting one onto my bike (which already has bar ends). I ride a Specialized Sirrus Comp, a straight bar "hybrid" set up with road tires, seat etc., but with a straight bar and "Mountain bike" gearing.
Any advice would be appreciated!!
