I'm an experienced rider. The vast majority or my riding is mountain biking where saddle comfort is almost never an issue. I do ride on the road as well and do not love that saddle either. I did purchase and have ben using the Adamo Island Reef Saddle which is seems to be the same company as ISM. It's much, much better than the peloton saddle. I'm still playing with the positions but I think I'm going to really like it. At some point perhaps I'll get an ISM saddle for my road bike.
