I've never done one, either. The closest I come is using the Charity Miles App on my iPhone. It's free and all it costs me is the time and sweat that I'd burn doing what I'm doing anyway. I like to...

I ride in rain as long as it's not raining so hard that visibility and safety become an issue. I actually love riding in a nice steady shower. I'm just weird that way but I love the sound of the...

That's an impressive first ride. My first was only 2.5 miles and I seriously thought I was going to cry. My second, third, fourth, and fifth rides were also only 2.5 miles. The only difference...

Finally got to take a test ride on the V Flow Max. Initial reaction is all positive. Sits Bones are sore but that's actually encouraging. This saddle, while having a bit more cushion is a lot more...

Yeah, nose width could be an issue but I THINK my issue with the other saddle was more to do with nose angle and the cut out being just a bit too narrow and/ or short. If I can ever get out on this...

I actually had a fairly good run with a Bontrager SSR on the Madone. I think I paid about $20 bucks for it. I also like some of the CLoud9 saddles that, again, were in the $20 range. But, in my own...

Here's the one I just put on. Pics aren't great, but you can get an idea. I just haven't had time to get on it, yet.

Hard to tell from a pic but that one looks longer in the nose than the Cobb? I'll add it to my list. I'm going to take my time and find one that works well for me. One thing I love about Cobb is the...

Craig, I think the problem I was having was with the shape of the saddle itself. The V Flow has an upward angle to the nose. When the saddle is properly mounted, it has a slight "Nose Up" attitude. I...

Absolutely. I don't weigh much less than OP myself and love the Roadie. I kind of wish I hadn't given the Hybrid away, tho. There are days when it would still come in handy. :)

Just trying to make the point that everybody is different and OP should take advantage of the shopping process to try as many different bikes as he can.

I don't agree with the Hybrid Hate. While I've been on Road Bikes since '11, I started on a Trek 7300 (Hybrid) and regularly did rides of 40+ miles daily. To say that a hybrid is only good for rides...

You're both right but, as each butt is different, sometimes too little padding is the culprit. I don't think my issue is so much padding related as cut-out related. While the V Flow Max does have...

Giving Up On The Cobb V Flow Saddle

Well, I gave it my best but this saddle is just not working out. I'm just under 300 miles on it and, while it feels AWESOME on my Sits Bones, there's just too much, uhhh, "Crushage" going on. I've...

Cold temperatures don't keep me off the bike. Riding when temps are in the 20's isn't particularly enjoyable, but it's doable. In fact, after a summer of riding in high double and low triple digits,...

I agree with Goldfinch. It can take a 100 or so miles (I'm currently at 220ish miles with a test saddle) for your butt to even get used to being on a saddle. At the very least, I'd try to give it a...

I envy you your hills. I have nothing but humidity, heat, and bugs. Lots and lots of bugs. Is it a bad thing that I've learned to tell what kind they are based on nothing but taste?

Bill, I hear ya. I'm not fast, never have been, and probably never will be. It's all good, tho. What I lack in speed, I more than make for in persistence. lol

Thanks, y'all. I was so proud of me that I almost bought a Snickers but I didn't because I'm serious about my diet so I stuck with Skittles instead because Mmmmmmm, taste the rainbow! :)
