For any cyclist of any discipline, there’s always a great deal of trial and error when it comes to finding that perfect chamois or bibshort and saddle combination.
I’ve been through the mill of saddles, chamois shorts and bibshorts in the never ending quest for comfort. As a mountain biker, I’ve always been able to get away with a just “ok” bum set up, and this is the main reason that I spend as little time on the saddle as possible.
However, earlier this year I decided to embark on a journey of cycle discovery and try my hand at road, mountain and everything in between. Basically, if it has two wheels and legs for engines, then I’m game.
It was whilst out on my spontaneous 100 mile ride – I’m still not over it – that I learnt the hard way about the importance of a happy undercarriage. Have a good giggle at my 100 mile account here.
Since that ride, I’ve been actively trying out new saddle and bibshort combo’s to put an end to my long-distance achy suffering. With that in mind, I’ve been racking up the miles in the new Endura Pro SL bibshorts.
