Well Saturday was the last straw.
I have tried to adjust the seat that came on my GF Tiburon for quite a while now, but after Saturday I had enough. It seamed that I was squishing all the padding where my butt pushes, but the center and the front wouldnít squish as much, causing some nasty discomfort. Also the suspension post seemed to be impossible to adjust properly. I would put my heal on the peddle, and have a straight leg while in a door jam, but as soon as I would start to ride it would seem the suspension would sink a little more, causing me to be out of shape (no jokes please).
Well I opted for a saddle that has minimal padding (less than an eighth of an inch of compression) and a solid seat post. I propped myself up in the garage doorway, and got the saddle height adjusted properly for the first time since I had the bike, and I have the saddle adjusted horizontal so far.
My question is this. I road to the bike shop yesterday so they could replace the stem (warrantee work), and the saddle seamed very hard, to the point of being uncomfortable. I see these seats everywhere, and was wondering how long it usually takes to break in my saddle.
