    I've ridden the larger 55's through two nasty Boston winters and they simply don't care about gravel or road grit or any other nastiness. I downsized...

    I have the Cambium as well, and I prefer to ride it without a chamois. You're not weird at all, you've just found a saddle that's superbly comfortable for your anatomy and style! :)

    Don't be afraid to just hop on the bike "to turn the pedals", as it were. If it's crappy out, go ahead and throw it on the trainer without your cadence sensor or any of that stuff, and no targets. ...
