I'm confused. I have a saddle that fits. Are you saying simply "find a *softer* saddle that fits"?

EDIT: Should I just keep the B17 and get padded bike shorts?

Very nice! I like it a lot. It reminds me of my bike, but mine isn't as nice looking. 99c walmart flat black just doesn't look as nice as powdercoating for some weird reason :p

16 Degrees, solid ice, Nokian W160's.

That describes my commute this morning. It was cold, cold, cold. I had the option of driving the car to work today but opted to ride my bike instead. I put on my Nokian Mount and Ground 160's last...

Modify frame head tube angle?

I want to roadify one of my mtb frames. The biggest problem is the head tube geometry. I want to make it 73 or 74 degrees. Its an old Rock Hopper, so its probably around 69-72 degrees right now.
