So I am getting used to my bike and enjoying the heck out of it. I got a Diamondback hybrid in April and I could not even do a mile on the thing but kept after it and last weekend I did a 30 mile ride. It killed my butt in a major way. Now, just yesterday, I found out that there are padded shorts that are made and I wish I had known this 2 months ago. Would have saved a lot of pain.
