So here is a twist on the age old numb hands issue. My hands only go numb when wearing gloves. I tried an experiment on yesterdays ride. I have 2 different pair this happens with one with gel in the palm one without. They went numb pretty fast with the gloves on, I took the gloves off and for the next 30 miles of the ride no issues. I prefer to wear gloves as my overall hand fatigue is less and obviously they are more protected. So thoughts? The gloves are both shorter summer gloves with a not too tight not too loose fit. In other words under all other circumstances the perfect fit.
Maybe with gloves on, you unconsciously grip tighter to get the feel you need to be comfortable. Without gloves, maybe not as tight of a grip to get the same comfort feeling. The circulation in your hands is certainly better the more relaxed they are. Just a thought...

I rode 400 miles yesterday with the new bars I got to replace the hb's. No problem, no soreness, no numbness,and above all, no broken right wrist feel from the hand position. That's just me, I'm not a big guy, dont have the real wide shoulders.

That's the thing the gloves aren't tight at the wrist, my hands don't get fatigued so I don't think I grip to tight. They just go numb with gloves. Let me clarify something I was just thinking about, it's more my fingers versus the whole hand. Maybe it's too tight across the first knuckle.
