Sore enough to get a new saddle?
I have read quite a few new threads on needing new saddles. How sore are are you to want a new saddle? Is it a 40 miler and you feel that you can't sit for 3 days? or is it 10 minutes on a bike and your butt is just screaming? I don't have saddle sores or any residual pain but after 30 miles, I just need to take a break and later in the season I will need a break after 40-50 miles but my butt never screams in pain.
I have read about how great the brooks saddles are and was thinking about purchasing one but it dawned on me that I may not have a problem. I mean with a great fitting saddle will I be able to ride a century totally pain free?, like sitting on my sofa all day?
So do I need to look for a new saddle or not?
