I find that on longer rides on my Trek FX3 that my palms (particularly my right palm) go numb from the pressure I am exerting on them. I appreciate that part of this is related to my posture and the need to strengthen my core muscles. Was wondering if there are any suggestions or recommendations on what I can do to make things a bit more comfortable?
I have tried a pair of gel padded gloves but this does not seem to make any difference.
This weekend I paid more attention to when my palm went numb and it is definitely towards bottom outer half where the numbness starts. Basically where my palm rests on the "Satellite" section of the grip. Makes me wonder if I should try to adjust the angle which the Satellite sits. This will potentially stop my wrists from bending upwards and encourage more even distribution of weight on the palms.
After adjusting the saddle height/position and tilting the grips downwards to about a 45 degree angle I have noticed a huge improvement and my hands do not go numb anymore.
