Ive been riding pretty heavily for the past week and a half and my butt got quite sore after my first ride so im thinking of investing in a new seat… Prolly gonna buy one for $70 at local bike shop, ive picked one out and i like it, seems to be alot more comfy then the one i have atm. Just wondering… What type of seats you guys ride?
Berk SLR combo
San Marco TT
I find the most comfy are the skinny minimilist ones that look like torture boards.
I have a San Marco Rolls too and that is comfortable enough but I recon I’ll more often find the wrong knicks/saddle combo on that one.
I’m sure we had a thread on this already, but I couldn’t find it.
Anyway, original Cinelli Unicanitor, stripped to plastic and a re-issue Flite.
But my arse is going to be different to yours.
Fizik Arione or San Marco Concor for me.
stick at it. you could buy any saddle and get a sore arse in the first week and a half of riding. its not the saddle. it’s your arse.
And don’t be tempted by some skooshy thing with gel in it because your arse is sore after a week, those type can actually make things worse.
Having just been through this I’d stick with what you have for another couple of weeks.
I’d buy new knicks before I’d buy a new saddle.
I’d been rocking a Selle San Marco ODS for about 11 years and it was starting to get a bit tatty.
Replaced it with one I found NOS and ramped up my riding at the same time.
New saddle, exactly the same shape, and a lot more riding lead to a sore arse.
Bought new knicks and it’s much better, plus the saddle is broken in now.
get your sit bones measured, buy decent Knicks, try out many saddles.
