Cycling causes Impotence

No doubt about it. I was so depressed all day thinking what caused impotence so suddenly, then at the gym while cycling as usual it struck me this is the culprit. Then I stopped cycling on high seated cycle and switched over to the sitting-flat-and-kicking type cycle. Am still slowly recovering.

NO, bad riding position causes the problems. Also, many physical problems cause impotence, which cycling fitness helps prevent. So cycling on proper fitted cycles helps reduce impotence.

It is not our position but the height of the cycle. High saddle puts pressure directly on the artery supplying blood to the penis.

A very good idea might be to have "negative" height so the pedals are above the waist level

They're called recumbents.

This issue has been discussed many times on here, as well as a lot of research done on the subject. Seats have the potential to cause problems when incorrectly positioned.

+1 and pick a saddle that is designed to relieve pressure on the veins around your perineum.

I suspect, by PotBelliedMale's lack of vocabulary, that this is a troll. This debate was decided over a hundred years ago.

If you don't want to accidently procreate wouldn't that mean cycling is safer? So what's it doing in the advocacy and safety section?

Considering that China and India have more population and more bicycles than anywhere, my theory is that it is the other way around.

The Op should remove seat from post and sell it, continue riding as before; solve two problems at once.

I've never relized there were that many flavors of spam. Amazing.

Actually, removing the seat all together (leaving the seat post) would remove the pressure on the mister happy pipeline and put direct pressure to the prostrate. That should cure your problem.

Cycling is also the leading cause of people being renamed Fred.
