Has anyone here tried one? What brand do you recommend for a road bike (Fuji Newest 1.0 2009)? Do you think it is possible to slip off the saddle and land on the sissy bar because there is no nose to catch you? Overall, how has the noseless saddle worked for you?
My story (aka whine, skip if not interested):
I rode 75 miles about a month and a half ago and loved it until I took off my bike shorts and found I was totally numb, lasting a good three days. I recovered at a "good enough" level, but I'm really not confident I recovered 100%. The more I read about biking and ED the more I can't bring myself to get on my bike, leaving me with a $800 wall decoration that I love to ride but am afraid to touch.
I was fitted by a professional at a bike shop before the ride, and I wore bike shorts. I am interested in noseless saddles because they can't compress the perineum but I am worried that I would just slip off the saddle, land on the bar, and end up limp for the rest of my life anyhow (I'm 24, by the way). Any suggestions?
