I got that, except I got it from bashing it on my frame.

The only thing to do it get a more padded seat?

I've got a Macneil SL slammed on a Tierra and i always get bruises about 6 inches above my ankles on the insides of my legs, i just live with it, i've tried running my seat higher but i just love the feeling of there being nothing there when i hop or do anything else.

I seemed to get the same thing but then realize it was the way I was riding. I bet this happens most often when you're riding on something slanted or when you're spinning and the only full-proof solution is to straighten up your symetry over the bike.

:hihi: Sorry but I don't think thats a very good idea. You might end up getting your but eaten up by your back tire when compressing for landing.
