.. Not a girl, but why not put the same Flite saddle on her mtb? If it's a

.. resultant seat contact --versus the relatively upright torso position on
..the
.. Mountain bike with riser bars--stock Liquid 25....and the angle the seat
.. hits you) .

..I have a ridiculous amount of tilt in my Nisene saddle.

..Perhaps you could try this? Since doing so, I've never been more comfortable
..on a saddle.
..
.. I never felt any significant soreness when I switched from mostly road
.. riding to mountain biking ( and Brooks saddle which came with my Liquid) ,
.. but this is why I am posing the question to the girls---Women have
.. differnent seat issues than you or I do, and I am striking out with each
..of
.. the solution ideas I have come up with so far.
..
.. I could certainly take a digital photo of her current bike seat angle and
.. her position on the bike.
..
..I hope the girls can offer some ideas that may help. It would be a shame to
..miss out on the joys of offroad cycling.

Methinks thou dost protest too much. All you ever do is complain about how
uncomfortable you are. DUH!

I am working on creating wildlife habitat that is off-limits to
humans ("pure habitat"). Want to help? (I spent the previous 8
years fighting auto dependence and road construction.)

Why do you lift posts from other groups and drop them into ca.environment?
There is absolutely no environmental concern to the type of seat that might
be used. Get a life, idiot.

The original post didn't come from any of the four groups he
cross-posted to. He seems to think it fun to ridicule people
in groups they don't read. I guess it's the only way he can
win an argument with them.
