credit do

I talked adout the discomfort of the Serfas saddle but after this morning it wasn't bad.It was pretty warm and we only went 16 miles but the Serfas performance saddle actually felt pretty good. Maybe if somebody went a pretty good distance on one it might get uncomfortable but for short rides I would say it's a pretty good saddle.I guess I'm getting use to it as well. Just wanted to let you know,George

George,
I currently ride a serfas. It is similiar to the specialized alias. I've done a couple of metric centuries on it without any serious discomfort. I gave up my brooks and won't go back to it.

Lernt the only way to get a saddle not to cause problems is to Stand up as much as possible- Great for training the legs and doesn't wear out the shorts.

Have learnt that most saddles cause some discomfort eventually so frequent raising out of the saddle and moving about is the only way to cure it on long runs.

Feels hard as a rock doesn't it? Rap on it with your knuckles...scary eh? Not to worry, new ones always feel that way.
