Have you ever felt numb, tingling or powerless in your hands after riding? If your answer is yes, you may have committed the problem of excessive use of your hands.
Sports injuries are divided into acute injuries and cumulative injuries, and the problems of your hands account for the bulk of cumulative injuries.
In fact, as long as you adjust your actions and use equipment, you can help you stay away from injuries.
1、 Several reasons for adjusting the bicycle setting will lead to excessive pressure on the wrist and hand: 1.
The cushion is too high to tilt the weight forward and press the center of gravity forward; 2.
The handlebar is too low, which makes the weight lean more on the wrist; 3.
The bicycle frame is too large and the upper tube is too long, which leads to excessive stretching and wrist deformation when you ride.
When riding, you should not tilt additional weight to your hands and wrists.

The wrist should remain relaxed and should not be excessively bent or stretched.
