After putting on 500+ miles of riding and ~20 hours of stationary exercise on the Giro 20, I have decided to investigate a different seat.
The bike came standard with their Recurve Seat, and I am having a lot of problems with extereme pain in the upper portion of my butt after long periods ‘in the saddle’ so to speak. This has occurred pretty much since I was able to bike for an hour or more. I have tried changing the seat angle without much success. In general, it has gotten worse with the stationary biking, and I am somewhat concerned about being able to bike for long periods when going cross country.
I plan on calling the Bacchetta Company to discuss the Euromesh seat. This seat appears to have more of a curved area when you sit and may spread the butt pressure over a wider area, thus more support and less pain. These seats are rather expensive ($265) so I am hoping they have a used one I could try out for a week or so if I am willing to pay the postage both ways. All they can say is no; murder is illegal.
