Sore wrists

smiler21smiler21 Posts: 13
I had a bike fit done recently and after a 40 mile spin noticed my ulnar nerve and wrists started to get numb and sore which got worse the following day. The bikefitter said to expect some pain and niggles for upto 2 weeks then come back for a follow up. I was supposed to go for an 80 ml spin but decided against it incase I done more damage to my hand and wrist. I just want to ask is this normal.
Thanks

    No, it's not normal. Go back to your 'bike fitter'...

    go to a different one - this one is clueless. there is no reason on earth why you should pay someone to adjust your bike so you can't ride it and it causes you pain.

    at the minimum, put the bike back to how it was before this guy jeffed it up.

    and once your wrists are better go back and see the imbecile and get your money back.

    tbh, you could pretty much set the bike up yourself and not go to these dudes and save your money but thats a whole other can of worms that we won't discuss here.......

    We need to see a pic of the bike setup at least.

    Going back this week. If I'm still not set up correctly I'll be asking for my money back.

    The thing is - you won't know if you are being 'set up correctly' if your last experience there is anything to go by. If you knew what the 'correct' setup was, you could do it yourself. As mentioned earlier - a side-on pic of you on the bike would be really useful...
