Anyone done this before?
My bottom and sit bones are actually super comfy on the saddle, but I can feel every road vibration getting transmitted to the small of my lower back. Like the saddle is so hard that instead of dispersing the shock, it is beating me up with it.
From day one, I felt like I was sitting on a backboard.
I proofhided it, put miles on it, adjusted the angle. Still hurting my back. My old Brooks was fine. Same bike.
So I figured I would back off the nut a smidge and see if that helps. I will post back with an update. If the thing still hurts my back, I think I will have to get rid of it. It is just making riding miserable.
Facing the saddle nose, I turned the nut 1/8 turn counter-clockwise (or should I say "anti-clockwise"). From looking at the mechanism, this looks like it will loosen the leather up a smidge.
I don't want to start another breaking in thread, just wanted to see if anyone has had this saddle back problem and if loosening the saddle up worked for them.
