The saddle of AGONY
Yesterday I put my new saddle back on the bike (the Selle Italia C2 that came with it) and rode 38km. Rode 76km today and it is KILLING me. but the main thing is that it is the sides rubbing on my upper thighs, near the crease. My old saddle (Tri Matic 2) off the Apollo is marginally narrower in this place and is fine, except the rails do not extend as far back as the C2. (I have wacky body proportions...legs want a 58 or 61cm bike, and the torso wants a 56cm - am on 58cm) I am going to do some radical changes to the stem angle etc, but I still need the longer rails.
So basically I am looking for a saddle that is narrow in the curved part behind the nose, and has long rails. Not too much padding is ok - Tri Matic2 and C2 were ok in this area. Suggestions?
