I'm having a Bad Saddle Time. After years of biking shorter distances on a hybrid bike, I recently started riding longer distances (20-40 mi) and upgraded to a road bike. Well... I have been messing with my handlebars, changing the stem, etc. to get myself a little more upright, but the new road bike position is squashing my soft tissue in the saddle and it's miserable!
I used to have a Serfas RX on my hybrid, which I wasn't totally happy with. Now I have a Trek Women's CRZ+ Comfort, tilted slightly down. I thought it would help because the cut-out goes almost to the tip of the saddle nose, and most of my squashed soft tissue is toward the front of my sit area. But I am not happy with it. Can't stay on my sit bones, and the cut-out doesn't seem to help much. I am wondering... has anyone tried this weird-looking saddle (or one like it)? I am trying to get more info before I spend the $80: http://www.bycycleinc.com/
