I've been doing some searching through the past threads and I haven't really found the answers to my questions. First, about how long should I give a saddle (and my rearend) time to break in and get used to it before I start looking for a new saddle? I've put over 310 miles so far on the stock saddle that came on my '05 Fuji Roubaix Pro, and while its not uncomfortable, I wonder if there might be something more comfortable out there. I've read about the Brooks, and some of the Specialized and the Fizik (spelling?) saddles. Just thought I would get some online opinions about how long I should give my bike before I start trying saddles.
My second question is somewhat related. I purchased a pair of Pearl Izumi Ultrasensor Bibshorts in size Large when I got my bike. So far, I only have one jersey and one pair of bibs and I am looking to get another pair of bibs The PI pair that I bought were somewhat expensive (around $100). I've read on this forum that some of the Performance brands (not the gel ones) were rather comfortable and cheaper than my PI pair. I've also read that the sizing is different. If I wear a Large in PI, what size would I wear in say the Performance Ultra or Elite Bibs? If anyone can answer these questions I'd really appreciate. Thank you in advance for your help.
