I'm training for my first century in November and this past weekend I rode 35 miles on Saturday and 65 on Sunday. The feeling of accomplishmentwas tremendous but one area of my body does not agree. My arse. It hurt so bad the last 15 miles Sunday that I thought I was going to stop and not continue. But I grit my teeth and bite my tounge and made it the rest of the way. I'm using my factory seat which is on a 09 Giant Defy. First 25 miles its fine, but after that OMG !!!! So now I'm looking for a more long term comfortable seat for a 6'2" 250lb Clyde. I see that Brooks are getting high reviews and others high priced seats but are they designed for our lighter cyclists? Seems those tiny narrow seats get lost when I sit on them and they feel like a rock. Is there something out there for larger guys like us or is it a grin and bare it issue? I found on ebay a seat that claims to be very comfortable but cannot find many people using it here. Its a TOPEAK Allay Sport saddle and has some interesting information about it.

So if you've been there like I am and found relief someplace please share and save my oversized rear end. Which is rapidly shrinking I might ad.
