I've tried a few different saddles, but still haven't really found one where my butt and/or some muscle in the inner thigh region (#28?) wouldn't hurt after only 100km.
I guess this one isn't meant for touring
So I googled for infos on how to choose a saddle, and one of the articles has this to say:
(Source: "The Four and a Half Rules of Road Saddles")You can measure your sit bone spacing in several ways.
[...] You can do the same thing at home if you are careful:
- with a piece of Corrugated cardboard which also takes impressions if done right
- By sitting on Playdoh between sheets of paper
- Direct measurement with a ruler or tape measure (and a very good friend)
- Floral foam in a plastic bag
Are there other ways to accurately measure the distance between the two sit bones?
Incidently, the four and a half rules are:
- Rule #1: Wide enough
- Rule #2: Flat enough
- Rule #3: Firm enough
- Rule #4: Maybe a cutout
- Rule #4.5: T or Pear shape?
There are so many saddles out there
