A lot of people wrote to suggest a professional fit. I've actually had that done up at Colorado Multisport, but as Pirate pointed out, the fit was to maximize power, not comfort. I'm not an elite athlete. It's all about having fun for me. If I'm not comfy, I'm not having fun. So here's what I'll be trying out this Sunday:
- I'm changing my saddle from the sleek, carbon aero saddle to what I like to refer to as the "comfy fattass" saddle with a cutout that I mentioned in my earlier post.
- I'm raising my handlebars up about an inch to take the pressure off my wrists.
- I'm taking along a pair of dry shorts to change into around mile 45 or so. Thanks to Casey for this suggestion.
The bike should be ready for this Sunday's long ride. I'll keep ya posted.
