    It would be more about the fact that said shop has priced their "We're dealing with richard cranium's return policy" into their general shop pricing and would, as a result, be selling items at a higher price than may be had elsewhere. Maybe this is why the saddles you are looking at are so expensive.

    It takes an ethical person to recognize an unethical situation. Sorry OP but you will never get it.

    I just went to bathroom to take a dump and was staring at my manly bits for a second trying to visualize how the heck I can run it between my seat bones while riding a bike.

    First of all, it would require having no balls. Second, I cringed at the thought.

    I think, what he's getting at is, that it is so short he can't help but sit on it.

    the right seat angle for your body is what is important, not the particular seat so much. not like it's rocket science or anything. play with seat angle and i can pretty much guarantee you will solve your problem. i've been at this since the 70's, i've seen a few different seats along the way and can't really say i've ever really disliked any of them based on feel. not liking a fair bit of them because they looked gay, now that's a whole different story...

    This is so true. I learned that with my Tioga Spyder. I had it set perfect and it was very comfy. I put on a new fork with 20mm more travel and I had to adjust the saddle to make it comfy again.

    I'd suggest going through with the surgery instead of tucking it back while riding. You're probably not fooling anyone anyways.

    Here ya go, OP ... It's called an exchange plan, at least that's how my LBS explained it, when I bought my last saddle.

    They offered advise on the selection, and stated that if within 30 days, I wanted to exchange it for another width, from the same manufacturer, to bring the old saddle in, UNDAMAGED, and they would do an exchange.

    BUT ... Only for this brand - https://www.serfas.com/products/inde.../e-gel-saddles

    I'm still riding their suggestion, and had no need to take them up on the offer.

    P.S.
    An exchange is quite different than a refund

    Actually, the places they are most expensive are the places where the return policy is the most strict. The place I bought from gave me something like $100 off and a 100% satisfaction guarantee. So... apparently it doesn't drive up the price.

    And an exchange works just fine as long as they have a saddle that does work.

    But...

    1) It hurts the company just the same as the return

    2) They'd better return me the price difference if I exchange for a cheaper saddle!

    Most saddles "just don't work for long distances", you have to train your butt to get comfortable with it and that comes from time in the saddle built up over period of time.

    Ethical?

    What are the ethics behind selling customers saddles they can't return knowing damn well that there's a high risk of the saddle not working out?

    Why should I choose ethics that favor the seller over ethics that favor the buyer?

    With either set of ethics one is choosing to view the unproductive depletion of the others resources as an acceptable form of "collateral damage".

    From an outsider's perspective they both appear unethical.

    So, how does one resolve this dilemma?

    By free choice.

    If there is no deception involved then how can the situation be unethical?

    After all, if the company can't handle returned saddles it can easily just have a strict return policy, as many do. Those people I don't purchase from when it comes to things I don't know that I will for certain be able to use.

    And if the company can handle a very generous return policy, and even views such a return policy as beneficial to their business, then why shouldn't they be able to attract people, such as me, who can make use of such a policy? If you are condemning me for liking and using such a policy, then are you not at the same time condemning them for enabling me to make use of such a policy?

    Here is an idea. Instead of looking for stores with the best return policy, why don't you try spending your energy finding the store with the best fit specialist. Take your bike up there when you go and get things dialed in. If you are properly fit and you butt can't take it, you simply need to ride more.

    Part of the taint is the dick. And the dick is the part of the taint that causes the taint to be so large as to be smashed. Therefore, my terminology is still correct.

    Using this logic one could say that the anus is also part of the taint so you could in theory stick your dickn in your anus and all would be right in your world.

    Sorry, you are going to have to put a little skin in the game if this going to work out for you. Why not plan a day trip to the area you need to go. Schedule an appointment so you don't cause much distraction when you roll into the shop. Then ride a couple of hours where you end up and then head back. You'll get a good saddle fit and a ride in on a new trail or road. What's not to like about that?

    This. Best response to anything, in any thread, ever.

    (as others have alluded to, the right angle is key. i'm digging selle italia slr saddles on all my rides at the moment. a good pair of shorts coupled with a comfy seat angle works wonders. and moving around. if you're riding 50 mile-ish rides, i hope you're moving your ass around on the seat, getting up off it once in a while, etc.)

    EVAR.

    I'm sure that for some, this is true ... But ... Based on the LBS recommendation, I didn't need to return the saddle ... It fit properly, and both LBS and manufacturer made a profit.

    All I needed to do was install, and adjust it to suit my fore/aft position, and required tilt.

    YMMV

    there is some resistance in the scientific community with regards to including the wiener in the taint. care to explain why you are so sure that the sausage is part of the taint? this is very controversial topic, but nonetheless, very important.

    Oh, how I wish I could be a fly on the wall in the room in which a bunch of PhDs or MDs discussing taints. I think I would die of asphyxiation from laughing so hard I wouldn't be able to breathe.

    My guess is, that people with small sausages try to include the taint in order to make the whole package seem bigger then it really is. In my opinion, the taint, sausage, ball sack and anus are all separate body parts. All easily recognizable from the others. Chances are if it has a different name, it's a different thing. Although, some people, as a hole are big sausages, if you know what I mean.

    Specialized

    Specialized takes them back no questions asked. Every one is different, but the Henge is fantastic! And I do 12 hour rides.

    You have to measure your dick from the top. It gets all too complicated if your ruler is touching the dangly bits. IE you are not sitting on your dick and you should just live with your seat choice.
