OK, I have been going back and forth on getting a new saddle. BTW, if you are wondering about the difference between a bike seat and a saddle, then this may not be the review for you. After about 25 miles into a ride I start to feel it and I am starting to go further now, with 30-40 milers being a goal for consistency. I currently have 2 Adamo saddles, the Road and the Racing, on demo from Real Bikes Englewood. I put the Road on the bike, and went out for a 25 mile ride the other morning. It rode nicely, with the relief cut out and the shorter nose, the overall feel of it was nice. I tried the aero bars and there it was. NO PRESSURE!!!!! Good Golly, Miss Mollyl, that is a relief and a half. The final test was after dismount. Oh Yeah, the twig and berries were happy. How happy, Jimmy? Happier than a camel on Wednesday. Insert Geico ad here.

So next up was the Racing II, which was very similar to the Road. Maybe I am not that sensitive, but if there was a difference, I couldn’t have told you while I was sitting on the bike. It felt good. So, 16 miles into the ride, I headed for home. There was not going to be a lot more that I would know if I kept on riding, and the real world was calling as well.

Finally, I did that which pushed me to decision making. I put my old San Marco back on the bike. 27 mile ride with the group from Real Bikes Englewood was all the time I needed to remind me of how different the Adamo felt. The reality is that the sit bones felt the Adamo more than they ever did with the San Marco, but the relief that came in the form of no numbness made the choice easy. Combine that with the multiple reviews that mention your adjustment will be complete after a few rides and the choice was made. Message sent to RBE, please order me a new saddle!

It has been a few months since the original test and there have been many miles put on the Adamo Road. And there are a few things that I have noticed.

No return of the numbness. This has been a glorious feeling and the biggest selling point I can think of.

My sit bones have adjusted, and it did not take very long at all. If it was 2 weeks, then I’d be surprised.
The Adamo saddles in general elict a response. Love it or hate it, people have a response to it. There is no middle ground.

I was getting serious numbing in the last place you want it. After noticing this seat on other peoples rides and some research, I made the jump. The seat has a huge gap so that your stuff does not have pressure on it. Problem solved immediately. I went from being completely numb and having no sensation in 1/2 hour on the bike, to feeling normal after a 3 hour ride with this saddle. I also found an additional benefit for me; this saddle made me sit on my sit bones, and I wasnt before. It took a few rides to get that area used to the pressure.
If you are having numbness you need to get this seat immediately. The side effects af the numbness can be permenant erectile disfunction.

This saddle has been calling to me all year, and I cannot believe how it has lived up to the hype. I am so glad I got it.
