So I have had the Cycleops Fluid 2 Trainer for two weeks now, and I love it! it served me well for those days with bad weather or when I just didn't feel like going out. I have installed a rear-wheel mounted cadence meter so I am keeping track of my work out. So, all is well except for one nagging issue.
For some reason, I started to get a sore butt from the saddle while on the trainer! Now, the longest I biked outside was about 1.5 hours, but I was usually fine with the saddle. On the trainer, however, I am usually forced to stop after 40 minutes from the soreness and occasional numbness. I wonder why is this. I am in the exact same seating position as when I do cycling outside, since I use one of those front wheel blocks to keep the bike leveled.
Any suggestions? should I consider another saddle, or should I tough it out for a few more weeks? Many thanks.
