See my signature for some background. I have ridden my new bike five times about one hour each time. I am riding every other day with weights in the gym on days in between.
On each ride by the time I get to mile 8 my butt is sore - too sore. The seat is Avenir 200 Series Road. I have carefully adjusted for the proper seat height and angle and am careful to keep my butt back on the seat where it is supposed to be.
Sitting idle in the garage with rotten tires is my 1973 Schwinn Sports Tourer with a very comfortable Brooks saddle that is still highly functional and was molded to my butt many years ago. I guess the rails on the Brooks saddle are SAE and are a little too big to fit the clamp on my Raleigh metric seat post.
Any idea how to "make" that SAE Brooks seat fit?
Or should I expect the butt soreness to go away after some more riding?
Or should I buy a new somewhat wider saddle? Which ones do you recommend?
Doing this with minimum investment is one of my objectives.
