Great when you are not peddlling hard. Bad when you are.
on May 14, 2011
I have been biking to work and for pleasure for 30 years. Recently my PSA levels were creeping up so I decided to switch seat to be more protective of my prostate. Unfortunately I have to return this seat because it was very uncomfortable while peddling hard. A regular seat tends to be triangular to allow downward movement of your upper thighs. This seat is rectangular which hinders this downward movement. If you move this seat back to allow easier thigh movement, it feels like you are going to fall off. I suggest Ergo The Seat or the Hopson Easy Seat because the Ergo is triangular while the Hopson flexes. This product is only applicable for the casual or easy bicylist who may not notice their thighs being restricted while peddling slowly. The serious bicylist who pedal hard and fast should try something else.
Aug 2011 Update: I did try the Hopson Easy Seat and the Hopson Easy Seat did not work for me because there was insufficient cushion for my sensitive hipbones. I ended up using the Bell Gel Tech Ultimate Comfort seat but I pointed the horn downward about 15 degrees to ease the pressure from my crotch area. By pointing the horn downward, I simulated a horn less bicycle seat but the Bell Gel Tech Ultimate Comfort Seat have two soft gels and two springs for added comfort. Bicycle seats are like shoes: what may be comfortable for some people but may be painful for others.
