Your sit bones are easy to find. Sit on your hands and you should be able to feel them--one in each cheek. They should fit neatly on the rear of your saddle.

Here is an old thread with some more info on saddle fit....

Great description!!! BTW most new cyclist complain of butt pain. It's not until you start to get into cycling condition that you put more of your weight on your legs and less on your butt. As you get into shape you will use your saddle more for stability than support.

Depending on where and how you are riding your position will change as well, but for just cruising down the road the above is obviously how you will be sitting.

On the butt pain line you just have to get past the "break in" period both for the saddle and your butt.
