I have a XL leather air Miyata on my MUni, and it is really comfy. I can spend ages riding my MUni, on Muni type terrain.
Last weekend though, I was riding on a charity ride, which was 4 lots of 3miles. Total… 12mile.
Doing 12mile on my MUni normaly would not have been a problem, but on that ride I was SO sore!
I tried ajusting the presure in my saddle, but it was always hurting.
Sometimes it would be too soft, and i would be sitting on the base, and other times it would be too hard, and was like sitting on a brick. Sometimes i would think i got it just right, but when sitting on it, the air would compress a bit, and then it was really hard.
I dont know weather this was just because i was riding on road, and was not moving around so much, as i would be on a trail.
I think that’s exactly why. In road riding, you don’t have obstacles to deal with, so you just sit there and pedal, more or less. There’s lots less reason to move around, so you’ll notice your crotch calling attention to itself much quicker than on a trail. Lean on the handle to take some of your weight off, and try to shift positions frequently.
Yes. It must have just been riding on the straight and narrow for so long!
Mine you, when I play hockey, i just a standard Miyata on my NimbusII. It is really sore when i ride it normaly, but when i play hockey it is fine! Again, it must just be 'coz i am moving around in the saddle more…
