    So I just got a bike to get to and from campus. I haven't ridden on a bike since grade school, but apparently the phrase "it's just like riding a bike" is true; you never really forget how.

    Question is though, when do my legs again get used to the cycling motion thing? Do I just need to build up the requisite muscle?

    Yes. Be thankful it's not your sit bones or crotch area that is giving you aches and pains. :D

    Give it time and if the pain is to severe see a sports medicine specialist. They can help and give you advice for better performance.

    Ha! From the last bit of 'advice' from you guys, you were using pliers, screwdrivers, AND a hammer!

    It worked out well enough. I was probably going to lose those teeth any ways. I run my mouth a bit to much, and people seem to generally dislike me.

    I guess it depends on what else was ailing you. ANd of course your pain tolerance.

    Could you do a wheelie and still do it? I find that to be a most interesting test...

    The sit bones hurt too, but that's easily solved with a better seat. And sticking a rack on the back to put my stuff on= less weight bearing down on my butt.

    If you just started riding, a new seat will not help you. You need to get your sit bones acclimated to riding. Pretty soon you won't feel any pain. Unless you decide to ride for hours at a time. :)

    I will spring for the hacksaw blades. I have some old wore out ones laying in the dirt rusting in the barn. Tell me when and where and I will show up with them.
