    poor condition or time for a new saddle?

    I finally got around to putting my bike on the trainer last night. I hadnt been on the bike since September... I rode 35 minutes +/- and seemed comfortable while riding. This morning my sit bones were sore. I got on to ride tonight and was uncomfortable on the saddle. I adjusted it back a bit and it seemed better but still a little sore.

    am I in poor condition or should I start looking for a new saddle?

    My money would be on poor condition. Was this saddle comfortable in September after a season of riding? Has anything changed the saddle's condition?

    Same answer.
    Some people are like a Slinky ... not really good for anything, but you still can't help but smile when you shove them down the stairs.

    i dont remember it being uncomfortable

    the saddle is the same as when I left it. I wore bike shorts then and now. I'll ride on it for another week or so and report back...

    Agreed...So the season ends? I thought we just put on our fenders and studs and kept riding.

    meh, im either not that tough or not that diehard the outdoor season ends, then some indoor "pre-season training" then outdoor season resumes.

    That happens to me after no time riding. It goes away in about three days. Don't worry.
    You don't read my signature anyway, do you?
