Inquiring Crotches Want to Know

Today I returned the demo bike seat we've been testing out for the last week. Dave loves it and is ready to order is. I am a little more torn. There were things I liked about the ISM Adamo like it didn't hurt me in certain areas, it made it easier to stay in aero, and it didn't rub me in ways that would cause rashes. But there were certain things I didn't like, like it was slippery, I adjusted it like a hundred times and never found that sweet spot, and I thought it was really hard. Tomorrow I have an hour long ride and have my other seat on it. Tomorrow will really determine if I like what I have, decided on the other one, or keep looking.

For those of you out there, especially the women, who ride on the Adamo, what do you like about it that made you switch to it? If it's more personal that putting it in the comments, please send me an e-mail. I REALLY want to know.

The whole "not getting blood blisters" aspect was pretty huge in picking the Adamo for me :) Unlike any other saddle I've used, I can get off a 6-hr ride and NOT have a sore crotch/rear end (assuming I used good bike shorts). This means the only thing that affects my sex life during IM training is being totally exhausted, not totally in pain :)

I still haven't found the right saddle... so no advice here.
But I must say that I laughed when you said-"I am torn". Baha haah! I don't think you meant to be funny there, but it was funny!
Good luck. I think just time in the saddle does wonders. You need to get broken in. Sounds lovely, eh?
