Bike Bum-a-lum pains. What do you do?

#1 Postby Dr. Pink » Thu Mar 27, 2008 7:23 pm

When my Bum-a-lum begins to hurt I just lift it up when it's safe and give it a little wiggle. That usually allows me to go pain free for at least 10 more minutes until I need to give it a second wiggle.

Eventually though I want to get a custom seat made out of a material similar to the Temper Pedic bed.

What do you do?

I've found that having good bike shorts (6+ panels) and a good seat (designed for long distance touring) along with lots of riding helps alleviate that. I can ride for up to about 3-4 hours before I have to stop. And in those instances, I stop for a 10 min stretch to give my legs a chance to recover a little bit and stretch my back muscles as well (it's not just about lower body).

Soft saddles are terrible for you. You need good cycling shorts....and you need a firm saddle that fits well. If you look at who rides the most(road cyclists) they have very small...lightly padded saddles.

Your bum will eventually adapt to it.
A good pair of cycling shorts, and some Belguim Budder to soften the rubbing :wink:

I agree with what everyone else has said, Tasha and Potter clock up more miles than anyone...
Just one another thing, Make sure you get a Mens seat and not a universal or womens one.
Men have different shaped pelvises (The whole not giving birth thing), so a narrower seat is best.
Sore Bums and chaffing are not fun, so it's worth getting the right seat
Have you ever loved someone so much you didn't care what happened to yourself?
You Just had to be with them.
If they look at you, your heart stops.
If you feel their breath on your skin, you just ache.
Have you ever craved someone so much you didn't exist anymore?
