A hard seat actually puts less pressure on the prostrate and other soft regions between the pelvis than a soft one, as explained in the two links I posted. A hard seat gives something for your pelvic bones to rest on. A soft seat distributes your weight evenly on both the bones and the soft tissues.

Also: not that I needed an excuse to have sex, but thanks for that!

Not in my experience, at least. The narrow hard seats put all the pressure on the soft tissues, not on the bones. They aren't even wide enough for the bones to make contact, and in addition most of the seat is well forward of where the bones are.

Sounds like you need a new seat or a better position (not all butts/saddles are the same); try moving your seat forward. My rear end is always more sore after riding my hybrid with the big, soft, suspension seat than it is after a much longer time on my roadie with its tiny, hard seat.

My neighbors thought I was nuts with bike stuff everywhere. I hung out at the local bike shop and lent a hand wrenching. Learned a lot about bikes that way. And since I gave bikes away, the shop often gave me parts and stuff. Not to mention, some mornings I'd leave for work and find bikes on my steps...

When I transferred from Hawaii to San Diego, I couldn't ride to work, too far and had to cross the bridge. No Joy. I did keep a bike on the ship, and when on deployment I got to ride lots of great places (and few not so great). Singapore is a great cycling city. Hong Kong, is just CRAZY! Pusan South Korea is only a bit better than Hong Kong. The area around Perth/Freemantle Australia is a BLAST! And the area around Hobart Tasmania is just too incredible to ever forget.

I've started to get back to my bikes a couple times. I keep telling myself I don't have time. But I probably do. And need to get a different dialogue going in my head. Need to actually pull put my Fisher...

Since my wife's most recent illness, there is no way we can ride 2 bikes. So, I am looking for an inexpensive tandem. I only intend to ride flat scenic stuff until either I'm stronger or she is up for more...

Of course, all my neighborhood kids bikes are in decent tune... (I really ought to get a trueing stand...)

Please note, I rode almost every one of my own bikes... If I didn't, I gave it away, or hacked it into something else useful... The bikes I used on deployments were trash bikes. Not like I was going to risk my good ones...
