any experience with them? i'm thinking a long day in the saddle might be made more pleasurable with one of these, even if applied after a while. i'm riding a ti regal.

do(u)g, didn't you use one of these on the 508?

TIA!

In the 508, I used one on my regular bike over an SLR, but the climbing bike was an uncovered SLR. I had not butt problems at all, despite 36 hours in the saddle almost continuous.

I have 3 of the covers (I'm in to redundancy). I use them for rides over 10 hours. The comfort level increase is fairly drastic, especially if you spend a lot of time down on aerobars. The padding is just right, and the surface is almost frictionless.

I'd get one and try it before your double. You might want to lower the saddle a hair to compensate, too.

i'm sure this will fit in a c-bak or jersey pocket, no? nmJS Haiku Shop

yes, but why?DougSloan

Why not just put it on the saddle? It would be sort of nutty to carry it when you could benefit from it the whole ride, IMO.
