I have an opportunity to purchase a used "like new" Selle Italia ProLink Gel Form saddle for under $90. I own a Trek Alpha 1.1 and the Bontrager R1 on it is not real comfy. I am new to road cycling and 61 years but feel like I'm 40. I've heard this brand of saddle is top quality and the cut out is to ease the peroneal area. Any experienced users here with a review? Also, as I only got my bike a few days ago, I am trying to ease into the training. First day, 5 mi., 2nd day, 7 mi. My next ride tomorrow will be 8 mi., etc. I know my sit bones and all the rest must get acclimated to this new form of exercise for me so what IS the best way to work into the sport? Any advice is appreciated and thanks in advance for your expertise.
