Just wondered if anyone had any feedback on what works best to stop getting a numb bum. I've seen a
variety of products on the market from gel fillings, air and beads, with prices from £20-£100+. Just wanted to know where money wold be best spent..
Have read some report about using a Lamb Skin to sit on. Sounds good to me, ( But I think SHMBO ) would miss our rug from near the fire.
I have a Dan Medica air cushion fitted. Doesn't look very glamorous, but then I can't see it when I'm sitting on it and it does work very well. My first purchase from them was a gel pad, but I didn't see any improvement (bony arse syndrome), so swapped it for the air cushion.

go to Lambland and order a sheepskin cover and put a cheap camping pillow underneath with literally the merest whiff of air in, pop some holes in the sheepskin and strap it down on the seat with a long bootlace
I've done 1300 miles in a day on my K12GT with the same set up

hi tawny, i had alot of trouble with the numb bum so had good quality gel pads fitted into my seat which was expensive but it made a big difference but still is a bit of a problem when sat in the saddle for 4 hours or so , when i go up to scotland next year i will be buying myself a air hawk seat ive heard there very good
The Air Hawk seat looks identical to the Dan Medica device, but it's a lot dearer.

Keep on Keepin' on
Padded cycling shorts worn under the motorbike pants helps too
Chamois or gel insert ones can be found cheap - works well if you have a few bikes too
I give another vote for AirHawk. Pricey but worth it. You need to follow instructions carefully though, as some people have them over-inflated and they don't work that way.
