Thanks for your carpal tunnel input!
Thanks to all for your very valuable carpal tunnel syndrome input. Some of you have recommended going to a recumbent. This might be a possibility, but my standing in my small old money community of Somerset, KY (pop. 12,000) would be even worse than it is now. The conservative people of Somerset (average age 82) already think I am out of my mind for riding a regular road bike around town. They all drive Lincolns and Caddys a half a block to the 7-11. Seeing me on a recumbent would probably give them a heart attack!
