my cannondale xr800 cyclocross was supposed to come with a fizik pave saddle but rather, came with this painful apparatus. ive used it for a while and am getting more used to it but it still causes minor discomfort.
what is recommended? a gel pad or a new saddle. ive done a few searches and would prefer not to spend 120 CAD$ on a brooks saddle but if i must i might as well. gel pads go for 20$ so it will be alot cheaper.
your thoughts ..?
