    Well, go figure. Made a couple of Craigslist purchases, and it looks like something called a Prologo Choice is going to work for me. At least it has for two rides, anyway. So I'm going from the Selle...

    Yeah, I'm starting to think that I like that curve at the back, as by sliding back you can ease off on the pressure on the perineum. Also, the Regal-E is 150 mm wide, which probably suits me better...
  5. Similar saddle to Selle San Marco Regal-E?

    I break saddles. One per season. It's either my powerful quads, or...because I'm, you know, too phat for this sport. Or something.

    I've settled on the Selle San Marco Regal-E as "the one," but, as...

    Actually, I'd say that 5 mm is a fairly large adjustment when you think you've got yourself dialed in. Obviously, I may have thought I was set up properly on the bike, but I wasn't.

    The critical aspect of the adjustment is in having my heel a bit lower so that I'm not jamming my toes into my shoes and the pedal. Fore-aft tilt might not really address that as much as lowering...

    Check the date and time. It was actually 25 1/2 hours. Not that it matters, or that I'm always so anxious for responses, but sometimes threads do slip down past the first page more quickly than they...

    Toe/ball of foot numbness revelation

    My saddle was too high. I was pedalling like a ballerina, with my heels too high and my toes pointing to the ground. This was jamming my toes and the balls of my feet into the shoe.

    Interestingly...

    The "good legs" part of the year
