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.

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.
