I've been so frustrated at things that I haven't ridden more than once a week for the past 2 months. But after making 3 changes to my saddle position, I finally got in a comfortable 90 mintute ride.

Changes in total:
60 mm +rise stem
Look Pedals
More set back (not sure how to measure the actual amount)
Saddle nosed to the left 2-3 mm
Saddle down 1/2 cm

My last battle was with perenium pain down my right leg. Nosing the saddle to the left and lowering it fixed that problem. I may try a shim if I begin to have problems with the longer leg, but for now I'll leave it. Friday & Sunday's rides felt great. I had more energy actually worked instead of merely surviving.

So I just wanted to say thanks for the advice when I've asked--and even when I haven't (you know who you are). And thanks for listening to me gripe and lament about this bike. I am one grateful chick.

I'll post the Crit championship pics when I return next week. Seeya...
