This weekend I did a forty miler after several weeks of twenty to twentyfive mile rides
and I felt like some bow-legged cartoon character afterwards. Wow, did it smart.
Without being graphic, I think I have a pronounced perineum, but that may just be the tenderness.
My question is....has anyone tried a Brooks and a Terry saddle, and if so, how
did they compare?
Both are highly regarded but neither are sold locally so each will have to be a mail
order item and the process could take a while.
The Brooks is tempting but the cut-out in the Terry has obvious appeal, especially
The bike is a Trek 1200 which still has an aluminum seat post, and I weigh 190-200,
and I am 5'8" tall with a long torso and short legs and have just had a new fitting by a
local LBS owner whom I respect.
Yes, I did a search but both got such good reviews I thought it was worth asking anew.
BTW, it would be a Brooks B-17 or a Terry Fly Tri Gel. Using the new Specialized saddle
sizing tool that supposedly measures 'sit bone' width, I would use the 155mm saddle
Any thoughts would be appreciated.
