Well I'm going to need a few days off from riding the bike due to my taint being extremely raw and sore.

Fellow cyclists is this normal? I need a wider more comfortable seat because this one makes it feel like I'm wearing a g-string made out of steel after I get off the bike.
The pain will go away. Confirmed

wear padded bike shorts underneath whatever your biking in

My fellow cycling enthusiasts plommberg and Matty……… I was just wondering if ya’ll are riding bikes that fit you properly (this will probably make Reno’s head explode). I just read more posts…..Matty has the cycling bug it sounds like he got fitted to a frame :bowdown:
I just browsed FB Marketplace for a "Large"/56cm frame as that seemed to be my size based on my inseam. That said I think this bike is juuuuust a bit big for me. I think my next one will likely be a Medium/54cm for a racier position and shorter reach to the bar.

Love my current setup though, I think it's perfect - drop bar roadie but with wider 32mm tires. It's basically a gravel bike. 👌 I can run anything on these rims from classic 23mm road slicks up to about 35mm knobbies.

I’m actually in between a Large and a XL but I always ride Large. I just have the seat post high.
