    Advise regarding issue with sensitive men part

    Perhaps some one can chime in regarding my 'problem'.
    Whatever saddle I tried during the rides of about 1 - 2 hours, I have no problems, however 2-3 days after a ride, I feel some sort of pressure in that part of my man-hood that's hidden in my scrotum. It is not pain, but at least a bit uneasy feeling in my nether region.
    Happily I have no functional issues, but I am a bit worried. I tried perhaps 15 saddles with holes, without etc.
    I am a bit hesitant to continue a further search to another perfect saddle.

    I feel it is at least holding me back to ride on a daily basis, which is a shame as it helps to keep my weight acceptable...

    Hi 10Wheels, I don't feel any strange "entity"... but I appreciate your reaction.

    I have been to the doctor, but he could not find any anomaly. He sent me away, and advised to continue the saddle search...

    My Brooks Pro gave me an "uneasy" feeling down there on occasion. I traded it off and use saddles with a flatter top section now.

    It's important to make sure that you are sitting on the rearmost part of the saddle, and don't have the nose tilted down, which causes you to slide onto the narrower part.

    I tipped my seat forward a little bit and it took care of the problem I was having.

    you need reviews to decide? http://www.bikerumor.com/2013/08/13/...onomic-saddle/

    In NL you have Germany as a neighbor, so lots of stuff you have
    never crossed the pond to try here,
    due to Distribution arrangement s that were not established.

    Just tipped the nose a bit down of my current SI turbomatic saddle - and went for another 30 km. Same as ever no issues; but perhaps in a few days...

    Apart from a slight pressure feeling after 3 days in that new area, I feel a lot better.. No pressure issues on my manhood

    This week end I moved up my dropbar by 0.5cm - this seems to help too.
    I will report in a few days, if there is any more relief...

    just to confirm
    when you talk about sensetive man parts hidden in the scrotum
    i think you mean testicles

    the only way i can see testicles being affected
    is if they are in the way of moving parts like legs
    and getting jingled around by each pedal stroke
    or if you accidentally sit on them

    both of these problems may be alleviated or cured
    with a nice snug pair of cycling shorts
    or snug underwear under your looser clothes
    and careful alignment of your equipment before
    and occaisionally during
    rides

    there is a bicycle song by Rob Deez there is a line where he says" I adjust my testicles , dont want to kill my spermcells" lol

    Then in a bicycle song called Mother -----ing Bike..there is a line that says "cut out seat, protect my erection" lol so this seems to be an issue with every man riding a bike.

    I am sixty to I dont much care about my spermcells lol

    No, I was not referring to my testicles, but to... that part of my man-hood that's hidden in my scrotum. I referred to a part of the penis....

    Been on the bike again last Sunday. No real issues anmore, only sit bones a bit. After a lot of issues with fit and uneasiness, really great to bike without further pressurized organ. May need to install same saddle/use same position on the mtb too.

    Good to hear you've gotten your issue sorted. We can't encourage guys enough to not accept any concerns or issues down there. Even one friend who has lost functionality as a consequence of HTFU thinking is one too many. I know.
    Birth Certificate, Passport, Marriage License Driver's License and Residency Permit all say I'm a Fred. I guess there's no denying it.

    I should tell you that this matter took a real long time to sort out, bike fit did not really lead to succes. Endless trial and error paid off.

    Sorry, but there is no part of the penis that is hidden in the scrotum. The scrotum is the sack that holds your testicles. I think you simply mean the tail end of your penis that is within your body as opposed to an external appendage.
