so it's the end of my first riding season. I put on about 8k miles and didn't drop the thing. :D :cool:

but i'm noticing that the longer i ride, the more my shoulders make these ugly grinding sounds. I didn't really notice or care until the chick i was with the other day bitched about it. but it's definately there, i let off a real loud grinding sound in the middle of the night by moving my arm and she was using it as a pillow.

it's about in the spots that my shoulders/arms are in when riding.
I'm guessing maybe keeping them in that position for long periods of time along with the vibration is causing it? if i swing my arms around in a big circle they'll pop the first few times until the shoulders get warmed up.

i'm pretty sure this is a riding thing, they didn't do that before i had the bike, and i'm only 22.

is this happening to anyone else?

i'm not using em to hold me up though, elbows are bent and my legs/back are holding me up (couple hours of riding and my back will reaffirm that)
:dunno

no dumping necessary, i found out she was 17 :scared

i dunno, i just hope it doesn't get worse next year. you think weightlifting would help offset these sort of things? i havn't actually done jack-sh*t as far as excersize this summer.

Riding season over already? Year-round in SoCal...

Eventually it'll swell up really bad. The socket tissues will slowly weaken and your arms will just fall off. Go see a doctor and see if they'll reinforce your shoulders with Adamantium.
