It took a while to lose the bruised sit bone feeling, but my rides just get longer all the time. Did the MS Bike tour up at Waskesui yesterday, for a total of 2.5 hours of riding time. Only very slightly sore on the ishio-whatevers. This saddle rocks! It helps to have bought a Lite 209 for the other bike to get used to that pelvic bone pressure during weekday rides as well.
