Houston, we have a problem.

The fact that with all of the available seat options and underwear choices, I still hear lots of comments about beaded seats, air cushions, etc. That tells me that I'm not alone in having pain from...

How to get into off road riding.

Looks like your thread started out with a question on how to learn the technique of off road riding but changed into a much more opinionated (and fun) discussion on what bike you should be riding.

How about when planning the trip on the PC?

R-dubb, how do you make these changes when you're planning your route on the PC? With Mapsource open and Garmin Topo selected, I don't see how to do what you mention.
