The title says it all really. Have recently purchased a new bike (Specialized Roubaix, if that helps). On it is a perfectly normal saddle - the standard OEM fit. So far so good. The issue is that said saddle seems to be wearing through my bibs at really a quite alarming and potentially embarrassing rate.
This is new: I have had both saddles and bibs for a decade and at no stage previously have my nether regions made unsolicited appearances to the public. However, this now appears to be a risk. The wear seems always in the same place: just outside the chamois on both sides, if that makes any sense. I (and potentially the entire population of London) am therefore appealing to you, knowledgeable cyclists all (some of whom do more distance in a weekend than I do in a month). Do you have any experience with this issue? I assume I need a new saddle, but I really have no idea whether I need a smaller one or a larger one, or indeed if there are good brands that would avoid this. Or whether there are any other tell tale signs I should look for.
Honestly, bibs are both necessary and expensive. I would rather my seat stopped eating them. Any ideas?
