Ok – I’m somewhat sure that my bike fit is causing issues (despite having a bike fit a few months ago), particularly saddle. First, I want to rule out bibs. How often are you replacing?
So I’ve been following mid volume plans, but for last ~6 weeks, I just pick workouts at random (yea I know, not structured – I’m starting a new plan this week!). Basically, I’m on the trainer 5-7 days a week for 1 - 1.5 hours at a time. I’ve been rotating between 3 pairs of bibs for around 30 weeks or so. Gentle machine wash, lowest RPM, lowest temperature and hung up inside to dry.
Any thoughts how long I should be getting out of a reasonable quality pair of bibs? Endurance Anatomic chamois, I believe. Given bibs seem to degrade slowly over time, I find it difficult to know when they should be replaced. I have other bibs to compare to that don’t get much use, but different chamois etc makes the comparison difficult.
There are a few black Friday sales still happening, so I’m tempted to pick up a few more pairs to rotate between, but I also don’t want to throw out good pairs! Any recommendations for good bibs, or even chamois that’s suited to indoors on the trainer would also be good!
