I used to have pain/numbness problems on longer rides, but I was able to solve it with a B17 and some bike shorts. I normally wear bike shorts if I am going to ride any distance. However, I'm riding to Maryland this weekend (~60 miles / 97 km each way) and it's a bit too cold in Philadelphia for bike shorts. I know they make bike pants, but do I really need them? I wear jeans to commute to work (~7 miles / 11 km), often with this saddle, and have never had trouble. Would they work out for a longer ride? Any suggestions?
