hello all. i just came back from a nice 35 mile training ride and am having issues with my shorts. I am a 6'2" 260 lb clyde riding a 2005 Trek 1200 with a stock bontrager (sp?) seat. i currently wear a nice pearl biking short, but am finding that when i ride it slides down. Now, that leads to my sensitive areas not getting the protection they need because the cushion is out of place. more embarassing is when i get off the bike it looks as if there is something in my shorts because of all the sagging.
ok, now that the facts are laid out here are my questions:
- is there anything i am doing wrong in my technique?
- aside from all of you who will mention move to a bib, are there better cut shorts that people have found?
- if moving to a bib is the only option, where can i get a good one on the cheap without sacrificing cushioning?
- Saddles. It seems as if i am not riding on a saddle wide enough to fully support my "sit bones" causing some numbness on longer rides. what are you using?
thank for all of your help.
