boney butt, saddle recommendation
I've always had a boney butt, and my stock saddle isn't cutting it. I'm only into my 3rd week on the bike, but building up time/distance on my rides is becoming uncomfortable. After only 45 minutes, I am fidgety and my piriformis muscle starts to flare up. The piriformis issue is only on my right side and I have had this issue with the piriformis/sciatic issue prior to cycling. But my butt hurts on both sides. I did move back in the saddle on this last ride and it helped a bit for the butt soreness on the left hand side. My shorts have a thicker chamois in it. Any recommendation on a good saddle? Or is the issue beyond the saddle?
