My hands hurt during my first ride so I adjusted the seat height, position and angle. That eliminated the thumb pain but now my groin hurts. Ack. Does the pain in the soft tissue eventually go away? Is this just a temporary discomfort I will eventually adjust to? I don't want to tilt my saddle forward because that will put weight on my hands.
I'm female, if this info is at all relevant, so I appreciate any tips on how to stay comfortable on the saddle. I have a Jamis Coda and I'm using the stock saddle. And yes, I'm wearing padded shorts.
