    How can I say this... I have a really sore lower left ass cheek.

    It is difficult to see exactly what it is becuase of the position of it :mad:

    I have just changed to a new bike and new seat? Could this have something to do with it? It's really taking away the pleasure of riding my bike!!

    Help! :(

    Haha! Something everyone gets sitting for a long ride. If its an 'ingrown hair' you will resolve it by pulling it out. Not a great idea to shave your hairs as they tend to become stiffer and more troublesome.
    You need to recheck your saddle position, cushion comfort, riding position. Honestly, I havent seen many with serious problems in their **s.

    As I remember it as a newbe your but takes alot of your body weight but as you improve your legs take most of your weight and the problem disapears....on a diamond frame bike it is a saddle not a seat. Did you take a break from cycling over the winter? That can make it worse for you when you get back on the bike.
