To all ladies - Try an Adamo saddle - honestly - what a difference.

Horses for courses .. I sat on one for a few minutes and never want to do it again !!

But Meldy, I thought you sat on horses quite a lot?

One of my all-time favourite threads

And I might even need some of the advice on here if I take up cycling a bit more!

Oh... A classic!

Amazing what a couple of years cycling can do for the htfu-ing!

This so needs to be boinged - absolutelly brilliant!!

I found my lady garden was fine on my spec toupe saddle (which also has a cut-out) & padded shorts & also HTFU by going on longer rides each time, so when I got my TT bike I assumed the same saddle would work again.  Big schoolgirl error as you're in a totally different position & my lady garden became *very* unhappy (despite trying to HTFU as well)!  Was about to go through a saddle trial process with my bike shop (as they have some you can take away & try) & Adamo was one they recommended, which looking at it I was very dubious about, but reading all the comments here sounds like it's going to be well worth the try!

My garden is a bloody disgrace, not been able to get the mower on it for weeks and I do like to have nice stripes . Next door neighbour is hacking at hers with a strimmer and the garden behind is that wet that you cant walk on it without wellingtons on and lots of strange fungi sprouting!!

Be warned with the Adamo.  It's designed for cycling down on the bars or on a TT bike.  Do not get one if you mainly ride with your hands on the top bars.  They are rock solid on the sit bones.

I found that too Holly. Having an Adamo has definitely forced me into a more aero position.

I have a selle italia on mz tri bike and find it works well for me. Tried a cut-out saddle and a gel saddle, they were both bloody uncomfortable. I guess for me less is more.

Is this going out in e-book format anytime soon? Might give EL James a run for her money.
