I'll try to be brief. History: used to bike commute 12mi/day, fixed gear with 26x1.5" tires, old Specialized MTB. I had to quit riding when I broke my left hand when I biffed it really hard about 3 years ago, and I never got back on this one. I built a big huge recumbent but have since sold it because it was way too huge.
The bike currently has a B17 saddle and butterly/trekker bars. I can't ride like that anymore, and I'm going fully upright to save my hands and shoulders. I am getting different handle bars, but I need help with the saddle section. Lets not bother addressing those issues, I've been around the block a number of times already on those. I just need to figure out what saddle will work.
I'd like to get a springer saddle that will support my weight over bumps and what not. I need suggestions. I don't care if it has a hard surface or soft, as long as I can ride it in street clothes for 10-20 miles at a time without too much discomfort. My sit bones can't take that with my B17 saddle, its just too much jarring throughout my body.
Is there a particular saddle that'll work best? Alternatively, should I get a suspension seat post for my B17?
Thanks so much to those who have experience in this. I appreciate it!
