Sorry, but the words recumbent and solution shouldn't be combined in the same sentence.
post made me bust out laughing and wake up my wife!
No frock motors here! It's really only when pedaling hard up hills that my junk gets worked with regular seats.
Seriously though, if you're leaning forward and up on
the seat trying to get traction and just mashing away for a few miles, things start to hurt and get numb and tingly....in a bad way. I had some snowboarding boots that smashed one toe and I thought I was going to lose that thing a couple of times. It also distracted me and affected my performance on
the hill. The bike seat thing is a similar situation. I had a hard ultralight carbon/ti saddle and it was really efficient but it hurt my bones so I got a cushier one instead. It's more comfortable for sure but I know for a fact that the padding in the wrong places is cutting blood flow to my legs....and other things. I'll post up a review on
the freaky seat when it comes.
