    Ouch!

    My much beloved Tricosports padded and sprung saddle needed to be replaced.

    I fell in love with a Selle San Marco Pro Blaze Ti that was on deep discount at an LBS. I put it on yesterday and went for a 20 mile ride. The first five miles were pure bliss. The next ten were a little painful. The last five; I couldn't wait to get home.

    Fit = perfect

    Sit bones = OUCH!!!

    While the saddle is great in so many ways I need to toughen up my butt to truly enjoy it. There is no real cushioning or springiness to this saddle. Kind of like riding on a perfectly contoured board!

    Anyone else have similar experiences? Will my butt get used to it?

    Sheldon could probably customize one of these with a "perfect contour" for you.
