My throne for a comfy bicycle seat

I love just about everything about bike riding except for one thing – sitting on a painfully uncomfortable bicycle seat for an extended period of time. I have a fairly “cushy” oversized bike seat, but I still occasionally end up with what I like to refer to as “numb nuts and butt syndrome.”
There has to be a simple way to construct, fabricate, mold, shape, form, build, design, or pound out with a freaking jack hammer a comfortable bicycle seat for medium to long rides. If no one else can, let La-Z-Boy invent one or let someone come up with a bicycle seat  app. It is simply ridiculous that one cannot enjoy backside comfort while riding their portable bicycle throne for a reasonable price.   Whoever does invent one for a reasonable price will be laughing all the way to the bank.

    There are a lot of different seats out there. Perhaps you need thinner cushion, or perhaps the pad in your biking shorts has worn out. I would consult a local bike shop and talk to them about your style and length of riding, and your current saddle.

    I’ve been using Terry donna saddle for about 4 years. Suddenly, my behind has changed, and that saddle has too thick cushioning for me. I am going to visit one of my LBS’s and sit on the ‘sit-bone measurer’ to narrow down the saddle selection for myself.

    My husband is very happy with his Lightning recumbent, and his standard mountain bike saddle.

    Have you had a professional bike fitting? Being comfortable in the saddle is as much a matter of correct frame and bike fit–including saddle positioning–as it is saddle type. And an overly padded saddle can be worse than a skinny, harder one for some riders. Start with having a professional evaluate the positioning of the saddle(s) you have and the fit of the bike you have,
