I just recently started riding a lot lately after a two year break and have noticed that my hands get numb very quickly these days...I've tried new grips, bar ends, and adjusting my saddle back and forth to distribute my (considerable) weight differently. Nothing seems to help...could it be my bar (stem) heighth or length?
FWIW I'm 6'1" 205lbs and ride a "Large" (19.5") 2000 Fisher Mt. Tam with RS SID forks...it's pretty much stock except for the Serfa grips. I know that the Genesis hardtails had admitedly short stems for quicker steering, so I'm wondering if a longer stem might help...maybe being "crunched up" may be putting too much pressure on my hands...
any thoughts appreciated.
