can pretty much tick all those boxes in the list of typical complaints Mr S Brown lists in that article. Thanks for the link Jacquers.
What I've found, and only during the long rides, was the typical discomfort, and moving around on the saddle seemed to help quite a bit, especially with the soft bits between the sit bones. It was then that i was wondering if the sit bone support was non-existent/non-optimal. Some googling highlighted the oft overlooked saddle width situation, and if one goes through the list of saddles of almost any manufacturer, there doesnt seem to be much choice: it's pretty much one size to fit all, whether it actually fits or not.
but as per the article, there are other factors to take into account along with width. But starting with width is the more important one as the other aspects, eg fore-aft position can be easily accommodated for simply be undoing a few screws. When it comes to width, it means forking out for a new saddle. Not quite the same price-performance ratio when compared to undoing a few screws.
