If you must ask...
This review is anatomically sensitive and Bike Tires Direct may or may not choose to publish this. For many months I had searched hundreds of bike seats offered by several suppliers, and came away only confused by vast ranges of product description and pricing, until Bike Tires offered this Planet Bike Men's A.R.S. Classic Saddle with the full length center recess for comfortable anatomic relief at what I considered at a great price.
You see, during this time I was experiencing moderate to severe irritation and discomfort on my perineum due to what I suppose was caused by excessive riding, and did not know whether this pain was superficial tissue irritation or other interior glandular irregularities which would require professional medical attention.
After a few weeks of riding on this padded saddle with the center recess, my pain and discomfort has disappeared and am enjoying unlimited riding once again. However, this episode does heighten my awareness to monitor such things and to get regular medical checkups especially at my age of just over sixty years, but still appreciate Bike Tires Direct for offering this product at least to get me back on track in riding without groin discomfort.
I do not think that this subject matter is too personal to be printed, and other male readers just might find this opinion valuable and noteworthy, but I will defer to the wisdom of the retailer as to whether this should be posted or not.
Thanks for the opportunity.
