I won't through the whole process that Jim Hogan went through to fit me because I'm not sure how everything works but I will tell you that first things first - we got rid of my god-awful Ponzo saddle and found an Adamo Road saddle that I think will work! The Race was too hard and the Typhoon was really squishy, but the Road model was right in the middle. Then we adjusted my seat height up, we put a longer stem on, and we took out 2 spacers which dropped my handlebars down. He also adjusted the cleat on my left shoe. Nothing too drastic was done, just fixing some of the angles that my body takes. He said I ride with a very straight back which is good! So hopefully this will fix my saddle chafing crotch horrible issues and make me not dread my long rides.
He didn't actually have the saddle in stock (we borrowed one off someone else's bike to do the fit) but it's coming in tomorrow so I left my bike there and I'm going to go pick it up tomorrow after work. A lot of driving but oh well. I have a 4 hr ride on Saturday and I know it's not a super great idea to take a newly adjusted bike and brand new saddle out for a 4 hour ride but honestly, I don't think I could get more uncomfortable than I already was, and if it's awful I can always come back early and finish up my ride on my trainer/road bike combo.
I'm excited for this fit! The more comfortable I am on my bike the better and I think it will make me faster!
