    New to Biking...My butt hurts

    Hey there, this whole gas thing has me commuting to work. Besides, I could stand to lose the weight. I bought me a Scott Sportser and water bottle, so its time to saddle up. I look forward to getting to know you.

    Saddle time and some padded shorts should help that soreness. If it persists, you might need to adjust saddle angle or look at a new saddle.

    I've had several since 1999 but have settled on my beloved 2001 Litespeed Tuscany and my latest, a 2013 Cannondale CAAD 10.

    New doesn't mean thick padding. That kind of saddle will kill your backside. Get one with just enough padding and some decent cycling shorts or bibs.

    I have a SCOTT Sportster as well and love it
    Nothing modified on my P3 model 2008; all stock and it is a jewel!

    I am sure you will love yours as well... Had problems with the saddle at first, but after some 200 miles I got used to it. The saddle doesn't disappear but not as painful as before.
    Might put a Brooks B17 though on a later stage...

    Or the new, still in testing version--the Brooks B17 Imperial.

    It has a cut-out! It's glorious .

    Well, the LBS gave me a free saddle and cover, so the now the seat is nice and squishy. All is going well with the commute. Thanks for all of the advice.

    Best Regards,

    Jason

    About the butt pain:You can buy all the best products in the market,adjust the bike to your body,etc..but it will NEVER go away,on long rides it hurts always,no matter how experienced u are,but since you're new,It will get used to cycling and it'll start hurting after a longer period of time.
