I'd like to thank all of you who responded to my thread last week about numbness caused by my saddle. I've fixed the problem. As I had said, I swapped out a Selle San Marco Era with a Selle Italia Flight Trans Am. I also lowered the seat height by 3/4 of a centimeter and mover it forward by a bit under 1/2 a centimeter. I angled the nose of the saddle upward just a hair also. While riding I get out of the saddle more often and make sure to sit far enough back so all of my weight is on the "sit bones". This wasn't possible for me on the Era, no matter how I sat, I still was getting no pressure relief. End result? No more numbness whatsoever. I can't even begin to tell you how relieved I am. Thanks again for your help and input. Erik
