Hahaha..as for my case, its numb dick for me, when i first started wearing those tight death grip lycras....

I would suggest looking at those saddles with groove opening in the middle...or ur saddle maybe tilting too backwards.

Tried adjusting the saddle to have flat. Lets see how it goes. Do you still cycle and have the same issue?

QUOTE(KenC @ Nov 14 2018, 05:44 PM)
Your saddle should be horizontal. I.e. the nose not pointing up or down.
I reckon your seat post height is the main culprit. Try some YouTube on bicycle fitting. They can tell a much better story than I could ever do.
10~20km not a long distance, should not cause discomfort to your precioud jewels.

Thanks for the heads up. Found some videos too on the setting up of the saddle. Kamsiah

From my experience on how to notice wrong saddle height/tilt.

Tilt too downward, pressure felt on the wrist.
Tilt too backward, pressure felt on your lower back. Also can be felt on your balls too.

Saddle doesnt necessarily have to be flat. Your riding position will determine how much the saddle should be tilted.

Saddle too low, front knee will certainly feel the effect.
Saddle too high, back knee and thigh pain later. Your lower back will feel it too. And of course, your balls will feel numb.

Last but not least, the shape and sizes of the saddle plays a major part too. And the chamois..

So many variables. Good luck experimenting.

Once you got yourself fitted, ride 3000km on it within 6 months, your rear end and your family jewels are bullet proof by then, any saddle make no difference, No need padded butt.

It's your money, if you are not comfortable with what ever reasons,, don't buy.
OR you can buy one to find out.

All bicycle consume effort to push forward.

It's really weird when I hear ppl expecting Foldies to perform better top rank MTN and RB at fraction of the price BUT they never say MTB and RB can fold smaller than Foldies…

Average speed of 27-30kmh is very doable on a foldie. Which is something around the range of fast MTB groups ride. Pro (podium) MTB riders would definitely ride faster than that.

For rb, can just follow along jer lah. Once they hit 40kmh, say bye2. Hehe.

Good to know that. I somehow experience the other way around.

Padding : different padding offers different level of comfort.
Saddle : definitely differs from one to another. I find brooks b17 to be the most comfy, but it's still not perfect for me. The saddle width left some pain on my hip. So far im using different types of saddle. Broooks, smp, sdg, tioga clon. All feel diferently. The worst is the stock saddles that came thick padded. Fizik arione left me numb. Specialized body geometry too. Sakit bontot i had to sell it off.

All saddles are uncomfortable. No matter how you train your butt or how much you spend~ it's the nature of upright bicycle. It's just inhumane design~
Yet to meet anyone who prefer a saddle over any kind of chair at home or office.

Dear sifus,
new to bike communities and actually got myself an used tern verge.
i am thinking to change the crankset first. Did some searching and reading some blogs/forums. Final stage should be upgrade to double chainrings but i would like to go with just 1 single chainring at the time being. therefore seek you guys advices; is it Shimano 105 with 53/39 is a good buy? Can i use Ultegra FD-6800 (11 speeds) to pair with 105 double chainrings in the future?

upright riding position, so sit bone is located far backward. wider saddle should cater this. a more aggressive riding position your ass is more at the front saddle. more aggressive riding position such as TT, even the saddle nose is gone from the design.

u cant compare a saddle with a chair lah ken laugh.gif . that analogy is not quite suitable. I think if your continuously spin your leg while sitting at home (nobody does that), I bet that chair oso wont feel so comfy later. sweat.gif
