    Muscle burn vs. seat position

    The tops of my thighs seem to be getting more of a workout than they used to (relative to the rest of my leg muscles) since I moved to a new saddle. To alleviate this, should I move my saddle forward or aft, up or down? Thanks!

    Impossible to tell from a distance, but my guess would be that your saddle is too low, and maybe too far forward. But play with these variables in really small increments to finally get it right. That's what I had to do, despite carefully measuring the differences in length and thickness, when I switched saddles.
