I know that you are typically going to be sore after cranking out a ride but lately i have been feeling it in my back more. What does this mean? Is my posture incorrect or my bike not adjusted properly to me? I understand i will be sore but i think i should not be feeling it this bad in my back out of all places.
The only thing that has changed recently since this started happening was my seat to a MBT V Race seat. and i kept the same height and angle as best as i could.
No i have not tried to put back the old saddle cause it would make my BUM sore lol. I upgraded to this one just for that reason but now i feel it in my back. I guess i can try that and see how it goes. Do you have any other suggestions?
It could be many things. If you have weak core muscles, you will probably have pain during or after you ride. It could be the fit, it could be the saddle. It could be bad form in your cadence.
Soooo.. you should have a bike shop check your fit and your saddle, but make sure it is a shop that knows how to fit a person to a bike. Many bike shop employees know nothing about that stuff. But first, how is the mid section looking? How would you rate your core muscle strength? I find that many people who have back pain, have weak cores and need to strengthen them.
