Saddle soreness. Along with bigamy, wearing Crocs and discussing Brexit across a dinner table, it remains one of the last great remaining taboos.
But it shouldn't be. We're all put together differently, so it's small wonder that getting comfortable on your bike causes issues. But there's also plenty of common ground and some basic mistakes that most of us are guilty of falling into.

happy bottom time!
