Looking to get a shorter seat post than the stock seat post the bike came with. Unfortunately even with the stock seat post pushed all the way down, its still a bit tall. If I scoot to the edge of the seat post, I barely can touch the ground with my tippy toes while im sitting down. The specs on the site say the seat post is
Oval 6061-T6 alloy, 44cm (90mm0: ,47cm (100mm); 50cm (110mm,);53/55/58cm (120mm)
Thats alot of numbers so unsure exactly what width and length my current post is.
Also, is it sacrilegious to put a comfort saddle on a road bike? I ask because even with bike shorts on, after 5-7 miles, my balls/ass are pretty numb and then when i stand up to peddle a hill, it feels like blood is rushing back which is also a uncomfortable experience.
I don't plan on racing anytime soon and am riding just for leisure and relaxation. Would a comfort saddle work? Looking for something that I can ride a long period of time without any pain and a saddle where it would be comfortable even if I forget my shorts one day.
