Wow Tom. I'd never have thought a guy your wt would like an unpadded saddle.
You have piqued my interest to reconsider.
Though I can appreciate if you have a decent pair of nicks, you don't necessarily need secondary padding in a seat.
I often wonder why no one has made nicks with additional higher density padding under the ischial tuberosities (sit bones).
I suppose the other variable is years of riding - the longer the more likely you have some reasonable adaptive changes to the ischial tuberosities and surrounding tissue.
I donâ€™t have the advantage of that either as I purchased my first road bike at 65 in an effort to try and increase leg strength and improve my balance.
As far as knicks are concerned due to being on a pension my knicks are purchased at either Aldi or Big W and are not what you would call top quality.
Maybe the old adage of â€œno sense, no feelingâ€ applies to me
