    picked up new bike yesterday!





    Picked the new bike yesterday! am so happy with it and really happy with the customer service at Evans cycles in lakeside!

    Went out for a quick blast doing a few laps around the local bmx track and a little route back to my house for about 40 mins yesterday and allround with the bike i was really impressed! only downside is the saddle is a little hard so feel i may be investing in a new one in the future. Also realised just how unfit i am ! was absolutely shattered at the end of it.

    Congrats on the new bike.

    If it's been a while since you've been on a bike, I wouldn't judge the seat too quickly. I agree with Highwaystreets that the first few rides are going to result in some discomfort. After a few rides though, your rear will start to "break in" and you'll be good for the rest of the season. Those of us with a winter off season (me) go through this at the beginning of every riding season.

    Agree with Steamer19 here. Usually you want to give 3 consistent weeks of 2-3 weekly rides before you judge the saddle. Otherwise you could possibly be changing out a saddle pretty often trying to find one that works.

    I agree. I like hard saddles, don't get any with gel padding...just get padded shorts
