So I have been on and off(more off than on) on this website for more than two years. My last foray into riding was last year when I bought a Specialized Crossroads Hybrid and proceeded to put 11 miles on it all summer. The saddle was horrible and everything went numb and I gave up. Well this year as in the past two years, I am trying again. This time though I am engaged and my fiance is really excited about riding. We got her a Raleigh Mojave 2.0 last Saturday and she absolutely loves it. I picked up a new gel saddle and so far so good. I have about 8 miles on it and so far all I have is what I guess is typical "break in pain". Nothing has gone numb down there, so I am thrilled about that. My handlebars on the other hand need some work. My hands and wrist start to hurt and go numb after a few miles and I was wondering if I can adjust the handle bars? It looks as if I can, but there is a big sticker by the nut that says it has been tightened and to not loosen it.
I also made an Excel spreadsheet for my Fiance and myself to track our mileage, nothing professional, but I like it!
I'm looking forward to being a more active member on the forums and be safe out there and have fun!
