Alright then...guess I’ll just have to toughen up! LOL. I have some bike shorts but havent thought to try them with this bike. Will give them a try and just start putting on more miles. My planned ride this fall will require 300-400 mile days so i have a ways to go.
My Sargent did not feel right until about four thousand miles. I used an Airhawk for that time.
To be blunt you need to be riding 300-400 miles a day two or three times a month now and up to your trip. You will not only build the stamina needed you will also have lots of days to experience weather and clothing combinations.
