    Why I am not buying an ergonomic saddle...

    The theory sounds good. I have read numerous product websites, health reports and of course the threads on this forum.

    So, why am I cancelling my shopping?

    1. Expense: As a bike professional commented to me: 'bicycling is the new golf', as in an elite market.
    2. Simplicity: 'If it's not broken, don't fix it'. I don't cycle for more than 5 kilometers, and rarely get numbness.
    3. Waste: If I could go into a bike fit store, get all my measurements and tests done (for under $100), then be shown 3-4 saddles to TRY for a day, the one that works best I buy - that could work. But as no local retail stores carry any of the ergo seats it would be time-consuming to hit and miss try the many options by mail order.

    Do you create inept threads for any topic that just pops into your head? I'm just asking is all,...
    Fitness is only a side effect,...I feel alive when I ride!!!
