    Ride for a couple of weeks, you'll get used to it. If you don't then think about getting a new saddle.

    The fact that "Muir" is in the name of your bike is enough to tip my hat to you sir. John Muir is saucesome.

    If I had one piece of advice to give myself when beginning, it would be something like: work your way into intensity over time. Let your joints, tissues, and muscles prepare for the slaughter you intend to face them with.
