For clarity, Iím asking from a place of inexperience, not experience. I subscribed to this thread a while ago, Iím curious as to how things will turn out for you.

I have been riding for about 2 years, mostly commuting. A lot of my riding has involved a 24 mile RT to and from work, 2 hours a day on a bike with relatively skinny tires (28-35mm) and no shock absorbing qualities other than a steel frame. Iíve never had a pro fit. The only time I had more discomfort than what would go away after being off the bike for a couple hours was when I first started riding and my fit was wildly off, like saddle nearly 1Ē too high. Iíve never had such discomfort that it was ever really very noticeable while riding.

You may have or havenít had a fit, and Iím not sure if itís relevant or even matters, but Iím curious one way or another and intrigued by your approach, so Iím gonna continue following the thread either way.
Best of luck. I feel fortunate that I donít have great discomfort on the bike.
