I would expect your bicycle to have a relaxed fit, and no issues like this. Also, is your saddle level? A saddle too nose down would put pressure on your hands.

I guess it depends on what exactly is meant by "broken in". I found it pretty comfortable right out of the box, but then it seems to get more comfortable as time goes by. When does the breaking in stop and the breaking down start? Hard to say, but I would say that my saddle got progressively more comfortable throughout the first 4000 miles.
For me without a doubt is the Sella Anatomica Titanico. I have tried at least 9 different saddles over the years. Last September I did a short 200 mile tour using the Sella saddle for the first time. Never once did I experience pain or discomfort. As well I did not use any sort of cream.
I am planning a two week trip from South Bend IN to Lititz PA, riding across Ontario, crossing the border into Buffalo NY. I leave home July 5. Google Maps shows very little green in New York, and I'm looking for advice as to the best routes. I am camping (will motel it when necessary) and will need to be near campgrounds. I will be glad for any help given.
I am a daily bike commuter anx my bike lives in the wild. From my reading Brooks need TLC. That's not my style.
I consider my shorts (performance elite bibs - new in February) and they are great so far.

Any suggestion for a saddle that doesn't have to be Brooks?
Also, as this will be my first long tour, what are signs that the seat I have won't work?
No lube wars please.
I'm on a parrafin lubrication kick on all my bike's chains but haven't tried it touring yet. Has anyone used parrafin on tour and what scheme did you use for re-application? My two ideas are to carry a pan of parrafin to heat on the stove, or to use the stove to heat the chain in place and melt wax onto it. FYI, my current formula is about a tablespoon of graphite in a bar of canning wax.
I was thinking about FedX or UPS to ship the bike box and a box of gear.
I don't see anyone mentioning this as an option.
We can ship it to our first nights destination and put everything together from there.
