Hey everybody I was hoping I could get some good input on my seat. For those that haven't read my intro. I've had my new bike for close to 3 weeks now and have put 225M on it. I did as much research as possible to try and set up a good fit to my bike. It's a Dawes Lightning 1200. Everything seems to be okay so far except my seat. I'm starting to average 15M rides which I know isn't much compared to what some of you put in. I experience no numbness or pain in my hands, feet, legs, arms, knees, lower back, neck. everything is comfortable so far except the seat. I can ride with my hands on the hoods or in the drop position and I feel very comfortable. I do plan on going to my LBS for a real fit but have to wait a few weeks until I get paid and can afford it. I find myself very sore in the seat area and shifting and moving around alot to try and find a comfortable position on the seat. No chaffing or physical sores of any kind, just very achy. This also happens when riding with or without my cycling shorts I just wear basketball shorts on leisure rides with my girlfriend. I've tried making minor adjustments but nothing seems to do the trick. Also I'm coming from 17 yrs of riding bmx so this is really the first time I've utilized a seat the way it's supposed to be used. Riding bmx for so long I tended to stand and pump rather than sit and pedal so even though I've been riding most of my life I've never really been seated while pedaling. As I said I do plan on having a professional fit done but is there anything I can try in the mean time for the next few weeks until I can get into my LBS? Is it possible it's just taking me this long to get adapted to using a seat after riding bmx for so long or is it more likely the seat position or seat itself?
