cycling and e.d.

a fixed gear forum denizen emerges...

anyway, i wondered who/where there's any information on the reality of cycling and impotence/erectile dysfunction. i am from the fixed gear forum, but no...this isn't an attempt at juvenile humor. i figure this is urban legend, but some real info is what would be nice.

If you suffer from the problem that would be reality enuff! If so see a urologist, ignore the internet quacks.

If not, fuggedaboutit!

From what my doctor has told me, it can be a problem from ill-fitting saddles. Saddles that press on the perineum can lead to blood flow problems. Check with your own Dr. fo all the info. I did go and get the saddle properly adjusted after that meeting though.

do you get numbness at all? If not, I wouldn't worry about it.
