- Rough surface riding can really beat up on your wrists. If you ride rough terrain, a front fork with suspension might be a good idea.
- The handlebars are too far forward, which makes it necessary for you to stretch forward to grip the handlebars, which can put too much stress on your wrists, neck and back. If this is the case, you need to get a shorter stem or risers to raise the handlebars/move it back so you don't have to stretch forward so much. I think this is the most likeliest cause.
- The frame is too short. This would cause a very upright posture and cause you to put stress on your wrists. If you got an LBS fitting this would be the least likely cause. But just in case this is what's wrong, the fix is to either get a longer/lower stem, move the saddle back if it's on rails, or get a bike with a bigger frame.
