Hi Guys, I hope all is well with everybody.
I am looking for some advice in regards to getting comfortable in the saddle before I go and spend $200+ for a bike fit. I know that might be the best advice, but I would like to try and avoid that if I can right now.
I’ve tried 3 different saddles over the last few months and I can’t for the life of me get comfortable, whether it be on the road or on my indoor trainer. I’ve tried to angle the seat up, down, flat, forward, backward and to no real avail. I feel like I end up shuffling a lot on the saddle and trying to sit up, then get down low, shuffle around etc.
My last resort right now is thinking that maybe my bib chamois isn’t the greatest? The pain feels more like it it coming from directly under my crotch, almost like inside of my seat bones, which when I poke around, it feels like the chamois on my shorts gets narrow in that area and perhaps I need some better ones with a better placement?
I assume I am not the only person who has had this issue. So, without going for a bike fit (which I will do if I have to), what else has worked for you guys in the past and any other advice you could give me in advance?
Thank you so much.
