That time of year again. Time to toughen up the tush. I do almost all my winter riding on a nice comfy wide saddle, no padding required.
Yesterday, I took the fixie out for a 15km spin. This is the saddle on that one.
I had my padding on, and I was quite comfortable during the ride, and felt no discomfort after the ride.
Got back on the same bike today, and I was so tender, I almost turned back after the first block to trade it for the comfy saddle.
BUT, I stuck with it, and endured the rest of the ride.
Yeah, I know, HTFU already. I'm sure the calluses will grow back in no time.
