I use to bike alot in my 40's, and now that I am over 50, I get prostate problems a couple times a year. I like to mtb more than road bike, but I now have a really bad case of prostatitis that has left me with a sore butt. I went to the urologist and he told me to "stay off the bike" because doing that only hurts your prostate more (and he put me on flomax). I have been looking at different saddles (Selle italia, Selle SMP, Specialized), and I was wondering if anyone was an mtber and had the same problem and what type of saddle they use. I do not believe that all of these saddle claims to relieve pressure from the prostate area. I'm 6'0'' and weigh 185 pds, and currently use a Selle Italia Flite Trans-am which is a pretty wide (155 mm), hard saddle with a cut-away in the middle. I have enjoyed this saddle for more than 10 years, and have bought two others because the quality of the seat maker is very good. But, now I'm at a loss as to what to do . . . .give up biking?
