I know the feeling, my undercarraige felt like it had been kicked by an angry female after my ride. It's probably the seat in this case. So I got a Forte Pro SLX. The Stock seat, Fi'zik Alliant?? seems to have no give and no cut out. Anyway, I'm glad to like the bike! I looked at them (Orbea) but could convince my wife to let me spend that much on a road bike.
