I have $30 that I can apply to a store credit at REI.

It was from the Sigma I bought before I knew that my man bought me one a couple models up so I'm going to return the lesser one. :D

Would the funds be better applied toward some real MTB shoes, or toward something to keep the bum cushy? :confused: My saddle looks + feels ugly and if it's worth it to upgrade it then I probably will next month or the month after (depending on what shakes out of the money tree).

I realize people are probably going to say it's a matter of personal preference :p but in case there's someone out here who can help sorting out the pros and cons of the purchases, just thought I'd put these thoughts out there.

Thanks for listening! :thumbsup:

How uncomfortable is your saddle?

I'd say get some shorts with chamois before the shoes. There is nothing worse then finishing a ride with a sore ass. Shoes can always come later. If you get the laycra style shorts that are tight you can wear them underneath your shorts and still look cool.

My saddle is tolerable. The comfort level may be increased by repositioning it. Planning on stopping by the LBS before my ride tomorrow to have them take a look.

The Shebeest shorts are calling my name. A bit pricey but considering I've had lots of my clothes for over a decade, a higher price tag isn't too painful.

My old Doc's are the stiffest soled shoes I have so I tried wearing them on my last ride and it seemed to help out some.

If I was spending money at REI, which I seem to do every month, I would purchase shorts. Their shoe collection has never impressed me.
