    I bought a used Giant Cypress last summer to begin riding again. It has a Bontrager Commutergel saddle. I carried tools with me for about a month while riding and making adjustments. Finally I got everything set where I wanted it. The whole time on that bike while making those initial adjustments my butt never felt sore after I had completed a ride. There were moments while riding when I would stop and make an adjustment, but after finishing I felt fine.

    The gel saddles are definitely worse than traditional ones. I am not sure why people still think that the softer the saddle, the less soreness you will get. I have once tried Selle Italia carbon saddle for a whole day and probably it was the best saddle I ever sat on.
