Looking for a good saddle for short commutes with no padded shorts
At work I've joined a new team but my office is just over a mile away from where most of the team actually sits so I need to move between buildings a lot. No problem, I'll just station my single speed at work full time and use it as my building to building commuter.
I rode it for the first time today in my work clothes (jeans, t-shirt, sneakers) and I noticed that my "undercarriage cargo" shifted around a lot. I commute to work in normal cycling bibs that keeps everything in the right place, but in jeans that's not the case.
So my question is does anyone have any tips on getting a new saddle specifically for the on-campus commuter bike that'll prevent me from having difficulty with my precious cargo? My rides are likely no more than 2-3 miles at any point so I'm not looking for distance comfort, I'm looking more for short term comfort that keeps important bits in a safe place (i.e. not between my leg and the inside of the saddle.
