Do you like really tall old road bikes or really small old road bikes?

@MattiThundrrr , in case you didn't notice, you put drop bars on that bike.

Several years ago I suffered a prostatitis attack due to the wrong angle on my regular bike seat. I switched over to noseless saddles and have gone through a couple of different Hobson saddles and a Spongy Wonder. The Spiderflex is by far the best of the lot. The holes in the pads spread the load around where your sitz bones rest and really cut down on soreness and saddle sores. Because the sitz bones are sort of trapped in the holes the seat does not move around. The other brands with smooth pads let your butt move and that was disconcerting. Spiderflex has 20mm of travel, no prostatitis, does not move under you while pedaling. When first I went to noseless saddles it was like learning how to ride a bike again but you soon get used to them. Prostatitis is brought about by damaging the perineum area and is extremely uncomfortable. I have not had any more episodes since switching and I ride every day.

I’ve thought about putting drops on a cruiser for a while…as I see these examples I may be compelled to at least try it.
