    Rido review

    Someone asked me about my new Rido saddle. I thought you all might want to hear about it too:

    I've only had it about 2 weeks and almost all my time in the Rido saddle has been on the trainer. That being said, I have put in about 15 hours on the trainer with the Rido and it really does not produce any pain in the perinium.
    I have a Bontrager race saddle, Brooks B17 standard, Selle Italia Trans Am, and none of these are comfy once I'm in the saddle for over an hour. I'm a stocky guy, about 190 lbs and a short 5'7", but I don't carry my padding in the rear, it's almost all in my gut. So even though I'm heavy, I have a bony a@@. May be more info than you wanted to hear!
    The Rido took about 2 weeks to arrive from England. When I first saw it, it did seem a little strange. It's an odd rubbery sort of thing, and it didn't feel soft or comfy to the touch. But once I put it on the bike I was able to ride 2.5 hours on the trainer with no pain at all in the perinium. Now - I did get a little uncomfortable in the butt bones. But just a little and nothing like the pain I got in the crotch without the Rido.
    I am looking forward to some longer rides, and I will be switching this saddle to my new Specialized Allez Comp next week when it comes in.

    Our Lady of Blessed Acceleration, don't fail me now.

    Here's the web site:

    The seat is pretty cheap. Cost me about 32 bucks including shipping from England.
    It won the European magazines' Cycling Plus award for new product of the year.

    I'm pretty sure thet're planning US distribution, but you have to order them from England right now.
