    Don't buy a saddle you can't test. You've been riding plenty so it should feel great immediately. Off to the LBS with you dirtbag. Tri-saddle or normal; make sure it feels amazing.

    One more voice says, 'No.'

    My commute is even relaxing--not death-defying and idiocy-displaying.

    Ride smart, ride safe, and ride with a lick of sense.

    On a short ride: doesn't matter at all.
