Anybody familiar with LM2?

Vacationing in Tuscany this summer. Looking to rent a road bike. Have found a shop local to where I'm staying (Montalacino) that has LM2's. I've never heard of that make or model.

I do the same. Twice this week, on our group rides, my pump bailed out another rider who couldn't get it done with a CO2 cartridge.

Should my sit bones really be that far back in the saddle?[/QUOTE]

Sometimes, the leather is stretched too tight and takes longer to break in. A trick I learned is to loosen the tension nut 1/2 to a full turn. This will allow the leather to conform to you faster....
