    Padded shorts under what you might normally wear and get used to won't be sore for long.

    Never underestimate the predictability of stupidity.

    WTB Rocket V is probably the most comfortable saddle I have. ... addle.html

    Also padded shorts will make a huge difference.

    How the saddle fits your backside is more important than padding.

    And wear padded shorts.s

    I've just moved from cheap padded shorts to Endura FS260 Pro, after long 30 mile plus rides I have absolutely no saddle sore. Not as silly expensive as other bib shorts but silly comfy!

    Just keep at it mate. I bought a bike last year and I've only just started getting the chance to spend some time on it and I was getting sore too, but I've been on and off it for about 2 months now and while I can still feel the pain, it's bearable and lessening all the time.
