Good luck with the local bike shop, and trust your own opinion. I have had a few men tell me my seat angle is all wrong, and that it should be FLAT.
They adjust seat,
and I have the horn putting way too much pressure on... "my womanly space". ahem. Like "can't ride" level of discomfort.
I get out the allen wrench and drop the nose, issue solved.
The seat is a personal thing and the "experts" don't always have it right. Just so you don't have to ride a quarter mile like I did to learn that lesson. (I shouldn't have let them monkey with it at the beginning of a group ride!)
I have had the exact issue you mention on long rides, and I just have to shift around, stand in the peddles.... I think it means I have slid to far forward on my seat. Also, I have a padded cover, which defeats all the super cool cut outs on my seat for blood flow.
