Why am I getting hand pain????
Also, try dropping your heels more on descents. This puts any braking force through the pedals, instead of through your hands on the bars.
I also find when I’m out of the saddle, moving round on the bike, I don’t grip as hard, reducing hand fatigue.

Collective single track mind.. help me out!
Been riding a Cotic soul for a couple of months. After a while, wherever I ride, I get bad hand pain both sides in the joints of the fingers. Its not necessarily related to braking but heavy braking doesn’t help. Round Bristol its just about bearable, had to come down the fire road at Cwmcarn today halfway down as couldn’t bear it anymore. Road a friends steel frame and an Orange 5 to see the difference- less vibration and I think had the damage not already been done today I would have been alright. My friends rode my bike- said it felt like there wasa strange vibration at all times and quite crashy. Fork and everything else is smooth…
Its a Cotic Soul frame, just serviced Fox F120 fork (new seals/oil), this was done at a bike shop so crown race etc all fine. This was happening before the service and I bought a carbon bar from here to see if it helped… unfortunately it didn’t. Otherwise its a Chris King headset and XT front wheel- all seems to be working fine.
Anyone got any ideas? Its got to be something simple but its really beginning to affect my enjoyment of riding…Posted 5 years agoRob HiltonMember
As in pointing down so your not grabbing up for them?
Pointing down bad, quite high good.

I had similar occasionally with a pair of Domains with a medium spring, switched to a soft one and it didn’t happen again.
I was told it was caused by death grip, but I know it wasn’t.

How old are you? I get pain in my knuckles too, but didn’t used to. I’m pretty sure it is just my 34 year old joints getting creaky after years of riding, but more likely years of using a mouse all day. I found it worse with thin grips (renthal) but better with thicker ODI grips.Posted 5 years ago
