Hi my name is Roland and I've recently got back into cycling after 25-30 years not. Just got a new bike (comfort/hybrid) Opus Mondano at a LBS here in Oakville. My concern is that last Friday I went for a bit of a long ride(20-25 km) and on the return trip my left palm went numb with the numbness spreading into my fingers. the same thing happened the next day on a much shorter ride on a local trail. Anything I can due to prevent this from reoccuring in the future?
My beloved 2001 Litespeed Tuscany and my 2014 Cannondale SuperSix EVO Hi-Mod Team bike
Welcome to BF.
Do you wear cycling gloves?
When the spirits are low, when the day appears dark, when work becomes monotonous, when hope hardly seems worth having, just mount a bicycle and go out for a spin down the road, without thought on anything but the ride you are taking. — Arthur Conan Doyle
No I don't. I just recently got this bike at a LBS fitted for my inseam, ie. cross bar doesn't crush anything important, felt comfy on test ride and feet touch the ground when in the seat. Don't remember how I was holding the h-bars, but don't believe the arms were locked. What about the ergo type grips?
