Sore butt.

Recommended Posts

So I was heading out yesterday for a ride when I saw my neighbor in kit airing up tires on a bike. He was getting ready to ride so I asked if he wanted to ride together. He said, yes. We head out and he tells me he got his bike on clearance from Walmart for only $38 but he had to buy a padded seat cover because his butt hurt after riding. So along we go for a 16 mile round trip at less than 10 mph. Now my butt hurts. I never realized how much weight one carries on the saddle when puttering along. I may need a padded seat cover.

Not that the sensation is foreign to me, only the cause. I made my excuses, however. "It's a new leather saddle and it hasn't broken in, yet. I just put this bike together and haven't got the fit dialed in." And the new one, "Ever since my back problems, nothing works right." :lol:

Maybe that’s my wife’s problem, she doesn’t go fast enough. She had me put her big padded seat back on her bike after she rode 16 miles on a nice seat I had put on her bike last year.

It makes sense. When you are relaxed more weight is shifted to your ass as you probably are sitting more upright. My experience tells me this is true.
