Hi from Madison, WI:
I'm still a relative novice to cycling and my goal is to finish a century by the end of the summer (no big deal for many of you, it seems!) This weekend I pushed myself and did a self-supported 70 mile ride- by far my longest of the season so far. The ride went great overall, but my biggest concern was my saddle! I've got a Terry Fly and it felt *great* until about mile 55, then my sit bones started to feel tender and I felt like my hamstrings weren't getting enough blood.
Here's my question: Do you think I need to adjust my seat, or will my rear end "get into shape" as I continue to do longer rides? The fact that it felt great for so long makes me hesitant to readjust my saddle too much. I felt more comfy in the drops then in a more upright pose- so maybe I should move it back slightly to take some pressure of the sit bones?
Any input would be appreciated! Thanks.
