so when i pick up mine what would be the best way to break it in? some people believe in doing a hard break in while others believe in doing a soft break in. which one do you recommend and why?

I always believed in a hard break in. That way everything seats pretty quickly. Doing a soft break in leaves too many things to chance in my opinion.

^I partially agree with what youre saying. But the problem with that is the manufacturer already puts a certain amount of miles before it even gets delivered to you. Also add to that the amount of miles thats added when its delivered and you almost 100% have missed the period when you can do a hard break in. So I always do a soft break in.

so what do you recommend the maximum mileage allowed to still properly do a hard break in? not saying i would do a hard break in over a soft break in. but just in case i do decide to go that route.

Everyone has their own opinion on how to break it in. But the most important thing is that you don't actually break it when you do the break in. So whether you decide to do a hard of soft break-in just don't push it past what its supposed to handle.
