I might try a saddle with a split or a deep groove... I'll have to investigate. I didn't know they existed. I do sit on a pillow when I'm at my computer that's got that same V cutout but it only helps a little bit- though I imagine I'll never sit on a bike as far back as I do on a chair.

I DO ride a cruiser style hybrid, but now that I'm out on it a lot and know what I need, I think saving up for a road bike is in my future. Have you all had success moving from a more upright to a road bike? Obviously I won't be back on my tailbone as much but for me sometimes bending down (while standing) causes the same kind of pain as sitting on it. I wonder if drop bars wouldn't cause that same positional pain.

Argh... stupid youthful mistakes. Thanks for the info everyone. @WhiteKnight- doing 40miles without pain seems like a huge success! I hope I get there.
