After my "long" (to me) ride last weekend I decided I need another saddle. The one that came with my bike is one of those fat cushy ones, which is fine for riding around the neighborhood. OK, I read about this when I first bought the bike but I had to see for myself.
Anyway, I'm wondering if the cause might be something other than the saddle style itself, so I'll try to describe the problem. As I was riding, I felt as if I was being forced toward the front of the saddle. I'd scoot myself back, only to be back on the front . No, the saddle is not pointing downward; it sits flat. The fabric is somewhat slippery, and the back is wide which I think is forcing my hips forward. Though I wore jeans on my ride, I had no chafing or anything of that nature. The problem was just staying back on the saddle with my sit bones situated where they should be. Instead, I was constantly sliding forward.
Tom recommended the Terry Cite X (gel or non-gel) saddles in "my first 'long' ride" thread, and I'm going to order one of them.
Can anyone suggest another possible cause, other than the fat cushiness of the saddle, assuming the saddle is positioned correctly?
