Bum hurts on long rides. Upgrade saddle or bike shorts?

I have the original saddle that came with my Felt and my bike shorts were $30 ones from Sports Authority. Which is the better item to upgrade for a more comfortable ride.

Is the weight difference between Deep Vs and B43s that drastic?

People say that B43s are boat anchors and are way heavier than Deep Vs but a pair of B43s are just a pound more than a pair of Deep Vs. Unless everything on your bike is super light, wouldn't this be...

Why are messenger bags so expensive?

I mean they run at least $120 (for the small ones). What makes these "backpacks" so expensive? Even chrome fanny packs are $40.

What are the disadvantages of having a frame a little too big for you?

Question about riding backwards on a FG

Is riding backwards (backwards circles) easier with your feet in the clips/straps or on the other side of the pedal? I track stand on the other side of the pedal with no clips/straps.
