    I wear a turtle in my underwear whenever I'm not riding. Do you think that has something to do with it?

    You could have avoided this whole scenario had you been running tubeless.

    Vice,

    Something that has helped me with saddles sores is barely lowering my saddle. It has cured them for me so far this year. I use to almost keep them when I was riding a lot until I read somewhere that they can be caused by sliding side to side on your saddle so you can reach the bottom of my pedal stroke. Don't lower it your seat much though. Try 1/8th of an inch or 1/10th and go from there. I'm sure your saddle is close and most of the time road bike saddles are higher than mtb saddles. I hope it helps.

    Use Turtle Wax to remove those pesky hairs.

    affectionately known as 'hip rock', and yes it will lead to sores. A LBS should be able to do a quick fit or better yet a custom fit for you & bike.
