I hear these complaints from time to time... I am just curious, how is a tailbone affected by riding? I have to assume the rider is sitting straight up and down, english dandy style otherwise, there should be no problem at all. The tailbone ends just where one's butt crack starts... perhaps the OP means some other area?
Now if you are just having general low back pain (which I assume you mean), see a doctor, stretch after rides, take Aleve and Tylenol, heat pads generally help. Tylenol makes a pain patch you can wear while riding. Also consider repositioning your riding style. Instead of a comfort bike, consider a real road bike, one where your position is alittle more agressive (ie leaning forward) which will stretch out the back and take pressure off the spine...
