Hi All - Relatively newer cyclist and loving Trainer Road. Using it for a few months now and following a high-volume HIM plan.
My sit bones are sore during rides, especially longer ones. I train exclusively on the trainer until it gets warmer. I’ve noticed in my ride data I stand up during rides starting at the 1-hour mark. Doesn’t matter if it’s sprints, sweet spot, 3.5 hour endurance, etc. Once I stand up at the 1-hour mark I stand up every 4-5 minutes thereafter to relieve pain/pressure on my sit bones. The first 1-hour of the ride is great though!
Is this indicative of a saddle, chamois, or fit issue? I’m just using the standard saddle that came with my Giant Contend. I have no other issues, no numbness, no pain, etc. and as soon as I’m off the bike I’m good to sit in my office chair, etc. I feel like my fit is pretty good so what gives?
