    NC are not particularly buzzy.

    One test get mountain bike gel glove and see you get any relief


    Prior discussion on the topic focusing on wrist angle and throttle pressure cramping.

    What,s Your Opinion ?

    Handlebars and "numb" arm

    Thanks for posting and for the links I'd recently read the first one but hadn't read the second (or it was years ago lol) something along the lines of the second article did encourage me to install a set of risers which have helped but I'm just thinking of ironing out the little remaining creases of discomfort, most of my rides are an hour to an hour and a half and there are times the last 20 min or so my hands are bothering me enough to get my attention

    Though if you use heated grips this might not be the solution.
    My gauntlets are cortech (not sure what model) but I've never had any discomfort while wearing them

    My summer gloves though are a thin pair of Tourmaster gloves that have sense been discontinued

    I went down in April while wearing my summer gloves and they held up well, especially for 6 year old gloves with at least 60,000 miles on them


    I've been looking into what gloves to get next, so far I'm thinking these

    I think the problem may be with your hands and not the bike. I just had carpal tunnel surgery two days ago and never had an issue when I rode my bike.

    I'm hoping that's not the case but I know it's a possibility
