|Trace The Mitten|
When I took my two 3 day tour I the seat in the photo. By the third day my rear was so uncomfortable without any wounds., just a tender seat. I should not say 'just.' I could only ride a brief period sitting.
I continued to have this seat on a bike. When I bought my new tour bike I got a new gel seat which worked great on my tracethemitten. This old seat was on my old tour bike mounted on my mag trainer. Last winter as I increased my mileage so did my seat discomfort. I changed to a newer seat that has provided comfort for one hour rides.
Last week when I got one of my old bikes working again I reinstalled this old seat.
Today I was going to ride 1.5 hour. Four miles into the ride I said, "This seat is comfy. I like these springs over the bumps." By the last 4 miles I was so uncomfortable and said,"I can hardly wait for this ride to be done."
I need to get rid of this seat. It is only good for very short rides.
It made we want to explore the Brooks seat with springs. I will do some research on the various atyles
They do not look that different. I bet there is s difference.
