I'm curious when riding the DS2, if your wrists are bent when using the Ergon grips?

If they are bent and your arm is not straight with your hands, then you don't have the grips position correctly.

Please see the following page on the correct positioning of the grips:

The winged out portion of the grip needs to be adjusted enough that it supports your hand so there is no bend at the wrist.

Hope this helps
