There has to be a topp 3 seats! I'm currently using the Specialized Gel Toupe which is great up to 40 miles, then tries to carve my ass away!

Have tried:

Assometer - but seat is the right size 4 ass

Tilting forward and back all different angles

Using new padded shorts

Using 'udderly smooth' cream

Sticking it out!!

But always 30-40 miles it's so painful i can barely stay seated.

Any advise or suggestions, really appreciated. I'm a little under 12 stone, and do have a bony ass.

    I would say that your saddle is probably ok, its just a case of conditioning your arse to the distance. I usualy get uncomfy at about 60-70mile into a long ride but a quick fidget and....errr....seasonal adgustments and I'm ok.

    It could be a host of things, saddle angle, incorrect frame size (over-reaching), saddle height....Have you been fitted to your bike by a pro, if not that could be the answer.

    Unfortunatly theres no magic saddle out there that everyone likes, you'll get tonnes of different opinions. The fact of the matter is you may have to try 2,3 or 4 (or even more) saddles before you find the one that works for you.

    FWIW I use a Specialized gel tri tip.
