Saddle advice?
Quote | Reply
Ladies,
I currently ride an adamo and I need some advice. I've got fairly narrow hips and I'm finding this saddle is too wide when I am racing (though not in training, usually. Perhaps due to the chamois and enormous amounts of chamois cream).
Any suggestions on saddles you love?

Have you tried zip-tying the rails together at the nose, so it's a little narrower up front? I personally don't do this, but my bike's previous owner did.

I don't have any saddle suggestions but wanted to say that I have wider hips (had to size up to 155mm saddle on my road bike) and I find the adamo prologue wide at the front. I don't do IM length distances on it though so it's been manageable.

Maybe zip ties or see if the saddle comes in narrower iterations?

Try the Cobb Max. Great TT saddle and very comfy for road to. It has a tapering nose so you won't feel the saddle rubbing on the sides of your legs.

Are you sitting far enough forward on it? I eventually stopped using the ISM saddles because the spot on them that felt good was too far back, making the nose feel too wide.

Although they seem to have gone out of favor, I've done well lately with the Specialized Sitero. It's got a more narrow nose, and a wider flair. I do training rides with a neoprene cover on it because it has minimal padding.

I found that I didn't like the shape of the taper on the Adamo; I went to a Cobb Randee which is far more "lollipop shaped" and it bothers my narrow hips and pelvis much less.
