Got a lot of years and miles under my belt but am at my wit's end trying to figure out saddle discomfort. Been using quality Castelli bibs (whatever their $200 pair is), chamois butter and tried all kinds of different saddles.
Used a Fizik Arione Tri for about 10 years but it finally wore out. Ended up being shaped like a hammock over time. Since then, I went through the painful process of finding a suitable replacement and landed on a Terry Fly Carbon. A new Arione Tri didn't fit right and was instantly uncomfortable.
The Terry has been pretty good but I'm still getting pain/pinching/bruising seemingly along the sides just behind the nose. So maybe 2.5"- 3" from tip of saddle.
Do I need a saddle with an even narrower nose? I might give one of those Specialized Power Arc saddles a try but all of this experimentation is really making a dent in my wallet.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
