I've been riding a Brooks B17 for about 18 months now and I like it, but I've been struggling with some perineal pain. Definitely want to avoid that and any probs that might flow out of that, such as ED. I see that Selle Anatomica will modify your Brooks with their cutout and laminate for about 100 bucks. Can anyone here tell me if they've done that and if it's effective? If you have a Brooks Imperial, that will do, too, as far as whether the cutout relieves this particular problem. I was also wondering if just making sure you hydrate enough might help relieve any discomfort there.
