I replied in the 07 Stumpjumper Comp HT thread and realized I should probably ask about this. I broke my tail bone roller blading when I was in high school and I have had problems with it ever since. Knowing this I should have probably bought a FS bike but I didn't think it would be that big of a deal and it wasn't until two weeks ago.
I ride two or three times a week and go anywhere from 5 to 15 miles on a ride but two weeks ago I rode three days in a row on Barton Creek in Austin, which is pretty rocky, trying to work out parts I was having problems with. The day after the third day I could barely bend over to brush my teeth because of my tailbone. Now I'm already planning on buying a new pair of bike shorts because I've basically destroyed the ones I have (I do generally stand by the way. I only sit when I have to. I also have Pearl Izumi bike shorts that I wear under clothing.).
So my question is... are there options for someone like me when it comes to seats on a HT? I love my bike and I don't want to trade it in but something like this keeps me from riding for two weeks or so and I don't want to lose that time just because my tail bone hurts. Is there a really good seat I should look at or some other option?
