When I purchased my new Gary Fisher Piranha about a month ago my LBS was kind enough to switch out the stock saddle for a Bontrager Rhythm Pro. I knew that the relatively sharp edges were not going well with my 280+ # posterior and it only got worse the more I rode it. Too much like Papa Bear's bed.
Another LBS measured my rear and I walked out with a new Specialized Sonoma 155.......much, much better for the last two weeks, but not near the comfort level I remember from my days on the Oklahoma Freewheel rides. Of course, my body is not near what it was then either, but I can already feel it improving. I could probably hang with the Sonoma but, as usual, I can't keep from reading reviews.
The saddle saga continues. Last night I bought a Terry Fly Tri gel on E-bay and it has been shipped. I thought the price was not horrible at just a tad over $100.......especially since I got nearly $10 cash back from Bing for using it to search for the saddle plus my E-bay $3-4 cash back. Now if the saddle is as good as I've read.......
Report to follow after a few rides.
