numb bum
on: July 24, 2015, 12:28:45 PM
Hi All
Has anyone had severe numb bum as a rider after say 40 min to an hour?
I get it and sore knees as well!!!
Have tried a new saddle with an integrated gel cushion from Italy, looks the dog's gonads but still suffering. A friend suggested that the suspension might be too hard?
Any comments apprciated but it could be that i'm just getting old  :016:

Hi I have the 2015 Crossrunner and need to have a walk around after an hour or so in the saddle.

I thought it may be the more upright position putting the weight on a different position to my old CBR 600.

I was thinking of having my saddle modified with a gel or memory foam insert but if opinions are it doesn't make much difference I will save my cash!

If it gets too bad the air hawk cushions work well, but it is a bit of a pain having to keep taking them off when you leave the bike so no little *!8@€* runs off with it!

the 2013 has slightly lower footpegs to ease the racing bent knees.

Not suffered numb bum but I have plenty of padding.

My Mrs tried the 2015 model and found it uncomfortable as per the above comments.
She has decided to keep the early model that she has and that bike is all day comfy.

2012 model, don't get a numb bum but do get pissed off with my gentleman parts constantly slipping in to the tank! Ordered a top sellerie seat which should be here soon.Seems to be flatter and non slippy material so will let you know how I get on.

Hi Leathers999

I've been using a Top Sellerie seat since 2011 and it's the ideal solution, cost €230 all those years ago and not a numb bum since. They will also re-model seats to raise or lower pillion and alter shape as well, which is why we used them in the first place.

I was having the same problem.

Got a new airhawk off ebay for half the price.....I was impressed!

Takes a while to set up, it needs to be also flat, needs a lot less air than you think.

I managed 2 hours riding while only a mildly numb bum.

Only problems I had were my knees! :005:
