    Cycling in relation to erectile dysfunction

    What, if any, is the corrilation? How much do you have to ride for it to be a problem? I use a performance saddle designed to eliminate it, but i just hope it works...

    Riding a bicycle does not cause erectile dysfunction, but riding a bicycle incorrectly sometimes will. The saddle is not the problem. Low handlebars are the problem. Too-low handlebars force you to lean forward onto your perineum, putting pressure in a place that cuts off blood flow to the penis. So if you get numb nuts and/or numb pecker you should look for a solution in your riding position first, then look at new saddles (brooks b.17 is a good choice).

    anyone seen those 'hammock' style saddles. It would seem they have no pressure points what so ever. Does anyone like them..

    They have a weight limit - something like 180-190 pounds (??).

    Don't worry. I'm 59 and ride all the time and have no problems at all.
    My saddle? A Selle Italia Flite Gel Flow.....

    Since my significant other and I started riding, sex has only gotten better. Her and I both last longer and get less tired.
    No dysfunction here
