The trade-off is less area to support your weight. Not a problem at all for me now that I ride a recumbent.
well I was 22 stone, im thinking of stopping at 11 stone, certainly going to stop, take a good long look at my body, and see if I should or not.
Im quite short for a bloke, so 11 stone, may still be on the high side.
The 22 stone, is why I used the XL saddle, but im thinking its time I switched back down to a more normal size. Looked at recumbents, fear I may see it as a novelty thing, than a serious bike.
Meausing my weight in stone, is the only way I know how to do it, Pounds and Kg, is just as confusing to me, as stone is to you, however I think both are a bit small, as if you track on either, you may end up noting more weight increses than you would looking at stone, as they are small weights. I have been looking at my weight loss every 1/2 stone, and that has worked well for me. Obviously as I get down into the teens, I may look at something slighty differnt.
