    wrist pain?

    Hi,

    Have you ever experienced wrist pain from riding this kind of handlebar (don't know the english name of, dictionary not helpfull in that)?
    I ask cause being musician I have to be carefull. I've never had this style of bike, and it doesnt really matter what size the frame is, it feels a bit ackward. It's a matter of getting used to I know after one or two rounds it'll pass.
    thanks
    Rach

    I was just making a joke, since there wasn't any picture posted. So you are just talking about the generic handlebar on road bikes?

    yup. Just english not being my mother tounge I have no idea how its called officially. In hungarian its kosszarv kormány

    Nowdays I'm riding the attached bike, well, I wouldn't call it a bike, it is simply practical, has two wheels

    and the person behind it is me. So you can see my handlebar is verrry verrry different from the rb style.

    They are called drop bars. If you have pain you can sometimes change your position to help, especially if you are putting too much weight on your hands. I like to double-wrap the bar tape.

    Your bars could be too low, or too far away. You shouldn't feel like your are falling onto your bars.
