    Just came back form 30

    Did 30 miles in 2h 16 min, that figures out to 13.22 mph.
    I'm pretty happy with that. I feel like I had more leg, but not enough butt.
    I mostly ride a 10-12 mile loop. 20ish on the weekends. Think I've only broke 30 a couple times. Not losing much weight, but man am I getting stronger.

    I'm there, buddy... distance 'n speed... and saddle time... are what make the trifecta!

    The weight/body-mass will disappear, once your body has made enough muscle to really begin burning the fat. I tend to get heavier/bulkier for a while, then s-l-o-w-l-y become leaner 'n lighter.

    If I understand you correctly, you might try moving the seat back just a bit, in order to get more "involvement" of your glutes and hams.
