Norco Factory Team Mechanic Lewis Kirkwood Thinks Mountain Biking Could be Giving us Bad Vibrations
Last year, I rode 3 days at the Whistler Bike Park, in late August when the brake bumps were at their worst. I had significant arm pump by the end of the trip, which took about a week to feel better. But I still had weakness in my hands and pain while riding. I could not ride a tech trail without stopping several times to shake out my hands and arms. I was also too weak to open jars. Six months later I sought out medical treatment. My doctor sent me for a nerve conduction study, and I was diagnosed with carpal tunnel syndrome. It took about 3 months of therapy to recover. Luckily, no surgery was required. Now when I ride rough trails, I stop more often to "shake out" the arm pump.
