I came home from running errands Saturday afternoon and there was a box on the porch with the new saddles I ordered for my bikes. Needless to say, I mounted the one on the Giant right away and test rode it! Didn't feel too bad up and down the street, so I changed into my riding clothes and headed for the trail. I made it all of 2.5 miles when it was clear that seat was not going to work, too narrow. So I turned around and headed for home before I did any real damage to my lower regions. By the time I got the seats switched again, it was too late to ride, so I mounted the other new saddle on my '83 Puch and waited for Sunday.
Sunday noon I headed out into a bit of wind, but it was pretty warm anyway. The new saddle is firmer than the old one, looks better, but isn't a great improvement in comfort. I managed to make it 22.6 miles with no damage to my man parts, so that was better than the other one! I am going to give it another ride and see if it feels better with a little more familiarity. If not, it gets sent back to the store! It felt good to get in another ride, hopefully the weather will cooperate some more this week.
