I want to get a new seat for my road bike because I have periformis syndrom, my doctor suggested a wider seat. I am a senior citizen and love riding but don't want to quit. So any advise out there about this issue. The seat I have is 9" wide and 10" long. I also slide forward on it so I think it just doesn't fit right.
9" wide saddles and road bikes simply do not mix.
It can't and simply doesn't fit.
