ATTN DINKY; SADDLE HELP(2 posts)

I just read your post and would like to give my input. You mentioned you tilted your saddle forward to take pressure of your crotch. I had this same problem, although male, and tried the same. I found this had the opposite effect, putting more pressure on my crotch and also hands as you mentioned. I ended up actually tilting my saddle back; nose up a little. This takes the pressure off the sensitive area and puts it on the sit bones. I think this will help on positioning, The type of saddle is an individual thing, but I have found less padding is better for me, pro padded shorts. Good luck, hang in there.

Thanks! You are right, it would seem to toss the weight back to the butt bones. I'll try it! Heck, at this point I'll try anything!
