Get whatever dhb one is the right size, I just forked out for an ortlieb saddle bag and it isn’t as good as the dhb (reckon their micro would fit 2 tubes probs)


#1104

I don’t know but worth getting checked out surely?

(speaking as someone who never ever would bother to get anything checked out)


#1105

it’s slowly getting better. reckon there’s about 80% of feeling in it now.

i’m having all sorts of problems with this hand now. really sore palm, skin sheering off, a bit hurty. right hand is completely fine.


#1106

hacksaw & canal, m9. sorry.


#1107

I know nothing of biology and stuff, just hope you get better soon. Is it something you could ask your bike fit guy about? may have come across these things more often than a your GP…


#1108

yeah, I could, but I really cannot cba going back


#1109

I take it you’ve already read up on the subject?

Seems to be really common from the search results


#1110

Yep. The hand pain subsided when I moved the saddle down slightly during LEJOG but at the weekend I could feel it again, ever-so-slightly. On a 240km ride I did before LEJOG I could barely grip the bars at the end, it was so bad. I’ve tried different gloves / no gloves, and no difference. Really bloody weird, because I haven’t changed anything on the bike at all. Don’t understand why these problems suddenly crop up out of nowhere.


#1111

do you do stretches and stuff before/during…?


#1112

:no_mouth:


#1113

everything Ive read (cos I don’t do stretches either) is about after the bike fit, move your hands about a lot and do some stretching :man_shrugging:

are you right handed?


#1114

yep, right handed. move hands a lot on the bike now. i even checked if the bars were straight but they don’t look wonky to me.


#1115

First time on the bike in a few months - bailed into a ditch trying to reach for my water bottle


#1116

Oh dear profk man


#1117

Have you been taking photo tips off plasticmike?


#1118

#1119

Because the one on my down tube is being drunk from


#1120
