Have never had this problem riding up to 100miles on the road, but 20 minutes on the rollers and the jewels and unit start to get numb. Whoa! Using an Sella Italia XO on my training bike. Probably need to get a cutout, but have tried the SI TransAM and didn't like it. I am considering the Terry Dragonfly or similar...any other thoughts out there?
I used to ride a Terry Flysn69

And I liked it a lot; in fact, I did two IM tri's on it. I'm currently on a Oktavia Gel. I hate it, and I'm going to buy a Fly or D-fly in the near future.

Saddles are so subjective....

Any problems with the fly's padding?Andy

I've been riding a Terry Fly for two years. After 100 miles it still feels like I'm sitting on a La-z-boy recliner. Well... not exactly like a recliner, it doesn't have the foot rest that pops up. Anyway, I noticed the padding has separated from the saddle frame and is "falling" over into the area of the cutout. I would have thought the saddle would last longer than two years. Did you saddle fall apart too?
No, mine lasted three years...sn69

...and that included lots of tri's where I'd mount the silly thing all wet. It did fine for me.
Try the FlyAFred

The Fly is the same as the Trans Am Max (both made by Selle Italia), but the stitching is in the right places and the edge of the cut-out is softer. I've just installed the Dragonfly on my 'cross bike, but I still prefer the Fly because of its more rounded and deeper sides. Terry lets you try out their saddles without risk. Good luck.
