I want to buy or make a saddle that will end the pressure problems in the crotch area. There are noseless saddles available, as well as other attempts at solutions. I think nose-advocates say that the nose is needed for stability.
By "stability" they mean your inner thigh needs to press against the nose to help steer the bike. That got me thinking. Is this only necessary when you lean into a turn? I ask because I'm a casual rider, not a racer, and I NEVER lean into turns. Since I was a kid, I've always been too nervous to lean into a turn, fearing I'd fall off the bike.
So...do I need a nose on my saddle or not?
