I've ridden two saddles over the last 5 years...my original Terry Fly that I've had on my steel bike for 5 years...and a Fizik Aliante, that I bought for my CF bike two years ago. I did several centuries on my fly when I first got it and it's served me well over the years but after I got the Aliante, I found that it was a bit more comfortable.

Then...2 weeks ago, I did a 68 mile ride on my Terry using Performance Ultra Bibs and ended up raising a couple of saddle sores on my right butt check...along "the crease" (about where your circle is, except on the right side). Fortunately, I knocked them down quickly with warm compresses, hibiclens and bacitracin, and was able to ride last weekend on my Aliante (same bibs) without an issue.

Needless to say, I'm going to buy a second Aliante and ditch the Terry, which I think may have just worn out.
