I always have some kinda of sores down there (since i took up riding) but they just don't hurt anymore.
Yup. It's kind of almost par for the course / comes with it. I didn't want to be a dick and say it's probably a rule # 5 scenario.
8-12 hours in the bike, sometimes it just happens
Actually, I don't know when I didn't last have one
Kind of like someone developing calluses playing guitar.
I ride 15-18 hours a week (roadie), no saddle sores now, but it took a lot of work and realizing that 99% of fitters set saddles too high. I found that a lower saddle was key and most fitters tend to place riders on the higher end of the acceptable range. Even just 5mm lower can make a huge difference in comfort assuming the seat has correct fore/aft adjustment and has the proper tilt. Who cares if you lose 1-2% power, i would much rather lose a little power and enjoy the training. Once i found the proper saddle height and fore/aft adjustments i can ride a fairly wide range of saddles with no discomfort.
Random tangent but i still find it funny that the seat height that i find perfect is within 1mm of the LeMond method, while two different fitters have given much higher seat height numbers that were not comfortable but were "orthodox". I even had one fitter tell me that being slightly uncomfortable is normal and that is why there is chamois creme. I can ride all week, no creme, and not get saddle sores, it just takes a lot of time to find that ideal position.
