    Owlie and Murienn, since you've both mentioned having experience with the Toupe and/or Ruby, are they both pretty similar other than marketing and the plastic pieces on the Toupe? I wanted to get...

    I tried out a 2012 women's Supersix Ultegra and it was lovely. I felt too stretched out with too much pressure on my arms but in hindsight, I suspect that going down one size might have done the...

    My sitbones fit perfectly on the Prologo seat which is 143 mm - it's the bits that aren't as impressed with the seat over longer distances. Good point about broadening the search - I'm going to find...

    Thanks for everyone's input. I am thinking about starting to go on longer rides so my butt and bits are definitely going to be on my mind if I stay with my stock saddle. I'm going to shop around...

    My question might be an unusual one, but I'm still wondering: what level of pain or discomfort do you tolerate before thinking that it's time to try a new road bike saddle? Is there a Holy Grail of...

    I went on a nice 30 mile trip today as my first real ride with clipless shoes. It was such a nice day, made even nicer by not falling :) So glad it's biking season!
