Some of you may have seen me complaining about my seat - and how awful it felt. I have a FUJI crosstown 4.0 hybrid - and that seat is one that is slightly wider with springs. It had a spring seatpost, too. I had them get rid of the seat post on day one - because at my weight it just bottomed out. I toughed it out the last two weeks with it - and finally went back in and asked to try some others. He had some demo seats - and I'm really not even sure what the name of it is - but he put a much narrower less padded seat on the bike and I just got back from a 14 mile ride! I know that is 'nothing' to lots of people - but 3 weeks ago - I barely could do 5. I think I could have went farther than the 14 - but I ran out of water and was REALLY thirsty. It is 90 degrees here even at night. None of my usual soreness.
For anyone else out there I'm 320 lbs and falling - and yep I said it a much narrower non springed seat works better for me!
