Riding the bike after the first adjustments to the saddle felt odd. It felt like a lot of saddle was missing but nevertheless I was still attached to the bike. It is like my spine is attached to the bike and my legs are totally free to work the pedals. At first I missed the horn, but as I found my new attachment to the bike, I have come to love the new feeling.
On long rides my butt gets tired and eventually sore, but sharp pains and numbness are nonexistent. As I travel about, men stop me and ask me about the saddle and I now carry some pamphlets in my bags to distribute.
