resurrecting from the dead....So I can't get rid of the hand pressure still. No pinched nerves, nothing like that, just too much weight on the fleshy parts of my palms which leaves me with soft tissue pain after rides. Everything on the bike is perfect except for this still. Someone watched me ride the other day and suggested keeping the stem rise exactly the same but getting a longer stem than a 90mm - like a 100 or 105. He said it would take pressure off my hands by elongating my reach slightly, but it would keep the height and bars the same otherwise. Sound like a good idea that might work? I always thought 80-90mm is a bit short for a stem on a properly fitted road bike frame. What do you guys think? could it help?
