They say this is it, this is the saddle, the one to use if you plan to ride silly long distances. Anatomical Seat: the seat moves with your body as you ride, it meshes to your movement and has a perfectly designed space right down the center of the saddle which is geared to relieve pressure. I bought a seat with a slit down the center at about mile 400 on my trip across the country.  If you've never had a seat with a slit similar to this, it can make a world of difference. Selle Anatomica was created by Tom Milton and he was generous enough to donate a seat for the ride. Tom spent a career around cars, fixing up almost any car you can imagine and eventually invented the Selle Anatomica. In 2007 he did the Paris Brest Paris, a 750 mile ride over about 4 days. That is some serious bike riding.

The saddle gets rave reviews from everyone that uses it and I can tell you from just a quick ride down the street, it's going to be special. I look forward to taking it out on a long training ride here in the next couple days. I'll let you know how it is. Thanks again to Tom Milton and Selle Anatomica for their support!

    North Carolina to San Francisco
    The summer of 2007 I bicycled across the country with my college roommate Brent, from the coast of North Carolina to San Francisco, where I live now. We raised $11,500 for the Lance Armstrong Foundation in the process: www.biketripblog.com
