Ah yes, I remember when I switched from the waaay-to-small-for-me late '90s Raleigh MTB with the big padded Bell seat to my Hardrock. That was... different. It took a serious dose of getting used to, that's for sure!
Then I went from the Hardrock to my 7.3FX, a switch that still is weird to me. Both have a fit that I enjoy, but they fit terribly differently. I, however, could never get used to the stock saddle on the FX. That thing is just sheer pain, something I hear echoed by other owners. However, I hear that they changed the saddle for '08? Initial reports are that it's much better, or just as bad, depending on who you talk to.
Anyway, good luck with it! Sounds like quite the rocket
