    Riser bars or riser stem?

    I think I need to get higher up to alleviate stress on the wrists, but I'm not sure which is the best way to do it. Currently have a flat bar/stem (Scalpel 1000, definitely meant to race) but by the end of longer rides I just can't take the wrist pressure on my already-bad wrists. Lowering the seat isn't really an option either since I depend on full extension for speed purposes. I'm also using about as short a stem as I physically can right now (any shorter and bars would bang into the lefty) to attempt to get more upright. So, what's the best way to go? (I'm also looking into gloves with ulnar nerve protection, which may solve the problem - but just incase!). Thanks!!
