    I'm sure this has probably been discussed before, but (I am new to this board) and I recently starting riding again after not riding in a long time. Ive been building up after a few 15 mile rides and this past Sunday I did 45.

    I felt fine afterwards but I noticed on Tuesday nite a drop of blood in my urine. I wasnt sure at first but later I noticed another drop that nite. I called my physician and saw him the next day. He took a specimen and did the rectal prostate check(thank you sir may I have another----NOT). He thinks it is a uti (infection). He says it is possible that the riding caused a traumatic "prostatitis". He is supposed to let me know about the lab results tomorrow or monday.

    I've never had this "spotting" problem before, but I do remember being uncomfortable on the saddle for the last 10 miles. Has anybody ever had this before?

    The bike is a new bike; a compact frame roadbike with a very comfortable saddle that I have been very happy with.

    Thanx

    Gus :)

    It sounds like your seat needs to be broken in. They also make decent suspension seatposts, which are comfortable for long distance riding. Keeping your riding shorts clean and using a lube also helps.

    Just some things to consider since AL and Carbon frames can be a little rough on the body.
