What if I got one of them thar comfty saddles you have pete?
Hmmm, maybe it's your posture then Matt. People often get backache if they're tense on the bike, but you must be relaxed I'm sure.

TBH, our saddle was more for looks than comfort as we never had any trouble with the standard seats. One other thought, your saddle hasn't been messed about with has it? Maybe a previous owner took some padding out.

I got home and the right side of my body ached and had pains in my wrist, elbow, and knee. Oh well, shouldn't have wellied it home and maybe broke it up a bit, but I was just thinking of a nice bath.
