Dave: Yes, some guys just don't have the arm pump problem. That might be attributable to genetic factors or that maybe you have had good nutritional habits....or relaxed riding technique. Who really knows? We DO know that refined sugar impedes the muscles ability to efficiently process carbohydrates and oxygen. At any rate, count yourself lucky. Cutting out, or drastically reducing, refined sugar might help your hand cramping. It might be worth a try. In my opinion, self discipline in this area will probably spill over into other aspects of one's life. It's given me a shot of confidence and I'm getting so much accomplished lately that just got pushed to the wayside before. I'm sure much of this is mental, but it sure is working for me..

have a word with 2-dad's racing. i may sound a cheapskate (which is true of course!) but he may do a set of used short triple clamps & they're not exactly the type of thing to get buckled & bruised.
you'll probably find the shorter clamps help in an identical fashion to the way it helped the 98 & 99 bikes. the 5mm off your frame should be virtually discounted.
i only get hand cramp after having 10 pints of best the night before. i tend to hit both gate posts when i can't see where i'm going.
it's very important that if you ride after 10 pints to drink the strongest pilsner possible, it turns the sugar into alcohol.
what ever you do after this experience DON'T ride slowly past the exit gate counting your in time on your clutch fingers, i should know, my thumb caught the leader in the eye & he lost his job as a gynocologist.
