    Pain is weakness leaving the body.

    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.

    It's also possible your saddle is a hair too wide. I'd try the other suggestions first though.
    I'm enjoying my childhood way too much to ever give it up.

    Saddle sores

    I poke and prod them like it was a dead squirrel. They'll get infected quick and eventually explode the juices all over your pants. Then you have nothing to worry about next time you kit up.

    There's something about those long grueling climbs that gets my front end all stiff... And I'm not talking about lockout...

    Funny you say that, I broke my dropper seat post last week, I just can't ride with my post up, my trails are mostly all up than all down. So I climb than stop drop my seat than stop, put it up for the next climb. Sometime in a rush, I rush and put the seat-post to high maybe that it
