I have a pretty standard $150 mountain bike, with what I would call a totally regular, conventional saddle. I have recently heard that prolonged biking on such a saddle may cause numbness to the genital region, and perhaps even damage to the soft tissues and organs there.
So I'm trying to find an anatomically correct saddle, one with a "valley" in the middle. It seems that there is a huge selection, and I'm basically lost. What would be a good, solid, moderately inexpensive choice, for one of these men's saddles?
Also, as far as I know, the saddle is sold just by itself, and need to be attached to the seat pillar. Can this be done for most bicycles with no problem? Are there standards for the seat pillar's diameter?
Thanks in advance!
