The brand doesn't matter. I regularly take my saddles off the bike and give them a pretty good cleaning. Had one off the bike this weekend and Son asked if he could try it out for a day or two on his new build. If he likes it, he'll buy one of his own. So, I pulled another saddle out of the parts bin, one that has worked remarkably well for me in the past. Put it on the bike and went out for a ride. No matter what I did in terms of adjustments, I could not get this saddle to feel right. It was just flat out uncomfortable. My riding position has not changed since I last used it two years ago. Could my body actually have changed that much, or is it something else? Now I'm thinking this probably isn't going to be a good backup saddle, which is why I kept it in the first place. (The reason I replaced it was that I got a real good buy on the saddle I use on most of my bikes, and... well, that's another story for another time.) Have any of you had similar experiences with an "old friend" of a saddle not longer being so?
