Bike builders thumb- Occupational hazard?
I'm right handed, but my left thumb, the one that pushes the brake pad or holds the cable is KILLING me... this last build was a real pain, especially adjusting brakes on the road test.
A customer who has built/repaired a lot of bikes, but just got his first engines for him and his wife, told me yesterday his thumb always ached too.
How do the professionals bike builders cope? Or is it just grin and bear it?
