comfy seats = a new man!
I just bought a new saddle for my bicycle, and I have to tell you all that having that slit or hole in the middle has made all the difference in comfort for me. It's relieved a lot of pressure on 'you know where.'
Anyway, I have to admit I was pretty clueless about buying replacement seats until I read a great article on what to look for. It addressed the pros and cons of ;)material, shape, etc.
I'll share it here, if that's kosher: http://www.bikepartsplace.com/articl...for-me/#more-3
This site, bikepartsplace.com, has a lot of interesting articles and information for bicyclists. Thanks for welcoming me.;)
Another good resource on saddles is Finding the Perfect Bicycle Seat, by Joshua Cohen. It's an ebook available from RoadBikeRider.com. Cohen is a physical therapist who did an extensive study of the anatomical issues in cycle saddles and the claimed potential for injury, and presents his analysis and recommendations very clearly, with illustrations.
