I Want to Try a Cheap Selle SMP
I've been having terrible numbness with my Toupe Plus Comp. I am on the 143, which is what I was measured for. I've been measured several times at Specialized shops. Trust me, I've tried tweaking every possible way, and I'm ready to try something new.
I've looked at Cobb and ISM Adamo, but I want to start with Selle SMP. These all seam to solve the numbness issue, and that's what I'm looking for.
I did countless hours of reading on all this stuff last night, so I'd like to get some input on the cheaper SMP's.
Model choices are:
I am on a C'Dale Synapse, and since it's Florida, only ride on flats.
I'm 6'2 and 219# and dropping weight.
I can handle a pretty firm saddle.
I would prefer to stay the price range of these lower-level models just to try the SMP, but I'll go to a Lite 209 or Pro, if these others are too soft, or whatever.
Just looking to try the SMP style.
If you have any experience with these, I'd like to hear about it.
