Whenever I ride I experience pressure on the root of my penis from the nose of the saddle. As a result I end up sitting uncentered on the saddle so that my penis and scrotum falls on one side of the nose.
Today I went on a 15 mile ride on a new Brooks B17 which I had high hopes for. But alas, the rock-hard nose really crushed my jewels. I still feel like somebody kicked my in the balls!!
I tried adjusting the tilt during the ride. With the saddle level or slightly up it felt pretty good on my seat bones but unbearable on the root of my penis. With the nose down it would feel a little better, but I would slide off the saddle.
As I understand it, the breaking in of a Brooks primarily consists of dimples forming under the seat bones. Since this is not the problem I doubt it will get much better. Or??
Intuitively, it seems like a cut-out saddle would be the solution, but I hate gimmicky things like that. People could ride bikes fine before they were invented so why can't I :confused:
Suggestions are most welcome,
