Previously I posted about saddle soreness. I have since got two new pairs of cycling shorts and some Sudocream and this seems to have helped with the chaffing. I now have another problem in that during longer rides I am suffering from numbness of the old soldier. I think that this is probably due to pressure from the saddle. Having looked at a new saddle, some are now designed with the cut out section, supposedly relieving any pressure. Does anyone have any advice as to whether these work? I bought the bike second hand and the saddle came with it. Therefore it may have had some quite considerable use. Can a saddle be worn out?
