First Time on an ISM Adamo
I recently stumbled in to a free ISM Adamo.
I have been having trouble riding my felt saddle for over 2 hours lately. Chaffage+numb = unhappy.
Well anyway, I've heard a lot of good and bad things about the ISM. Either people seem to love it or hate it.
I threw my bike on trainer tonight, and tried roughly following the set up instructions. I jumped on for 5-10 minutes and it was too high compared to my old seat, dropped things down about .5-.7cm. Better.
Rode for another 10 minutes. Slid it forward about 1.5cm(I started with it too far back, because most people report starting with it too far forward). Leveled it out a little bit at the same time.
Rode another 10 minutes and moved it forward 1 more cm. In the end it was about over my BB, to maybe 1cm in front; my old saddle was about 3cm in front.
The last adjustment was kind of an "ahh yes" moment. It really started feeling right.
Some side notes:
it came pre-zip tied to narrow the nose up a little bit
it weighed 275 grams on the dot
I have to admit, I just have a hard time ever spending $165 on a saddle. Getting this used one for next to free was nice. I'll report back after I get it outdoors, and also a little more time on it.
