A little discomfort on the bike is a good thing as long as it’s in your legs and lungs. That’s the reward for a hard workout. But tingling fingers and aching wrists are not fun.
Wrist pain and tingling is often associated with pressure or constriction of the nerves in the hand and wrist. Restricted blood flow doesn’t help, and vibrations and hard impacts play their part as well. There we at GearLama recommend getting flat bar grips with small wings built in for most trekking/touring duties.
