Unfortunately, that isn't a bicycle-seat sales page. It's an
update-to-the-latest-macromedia-something-or-the-other page.

I'm doubling the distance, lately my bottom has been hurting a little more

and I wonder if I could change the seat to something better. I'm overweight

by about 40 lbs, so that doesn't help when sitting on a small seat. One

time I had a pilonidal cyst removed from my bottom and the irritation I'm

getting is appearing in that area and I don't want to agitate it any

further.



So, recommendations for a seat would be appreciated.



Thanks,

Bill


Bill, can you update us on what's happening in the butt area? I'd be interested in knowing what recipe you followed and if it helped or not.

Ask your proctologist.

What kind of bike? A racing style "ten speed" will put more of your weight on your arms/hands and less on your butt.



Padded cycling shorts will help, too.



Many folks (including me) find the San Marco Rolls saddle very comfortable.

I agree with Art. Moreover, after you ride for a long enough time you grow used to knowing how to sit on any good saddle and have very few problems. If you're really getting pains it's almost always because you're not sitting far enough back on the saddle.
