I currently have a Terry aftermarket saddle for my road bike. I replaced the original one with this Terry. I just got into road biking about 4 mouths ago. I am 68 years old and in excellent condition. I am training for the "Death Ride" (This is a ride that crosses 5 passes in the Sierras, gains 15,000 elevation and 125 miles.) I rode a century a month ago. Three days ago I rode 3 of the passes in the death ride and regularly ride 100 miles for training. Today I rode from Mammoth to Benton and back which is an elevation gain of 4000 and 75 miles. I tell you all this to say that I have really worked hard on training for the Death ride. The thing that will keep me from finishing the ride is my sore Butt. I have Pearl padded shorts. About 30 miles into any of my rides (it is worse the steeper the ride is) my Butt gets so sore I can't handle it and toward the end of a ride I find myself stopping every half mile. I went down to my local bike shop and had the bike professionally adjusted just to improve the saddle comfort but this didn't help. The pain is right in my sit bones. The pain goes away immediately when I get off the bike and I am good for another half mile or so. (Less as the ride progresses) I know the "Professionals" say we all need the racer type saddle with little padding but this just isn't working for me. The shop that sold me the new saddle had me sit on a seat and my sit bones put an indentation in the seat which they used to select the correct saddle.My dad used to tell me that he put a motorcycle seat on his bike and it was very comfortable. I don't want to go that far but I need something different than what most people use and what the pro's recommend. Please help as I really want to finish the Death Ride but won't be able to with the conventional saddle.
