    Their commercials are too weird.

    Saddle sore?

    Hope this helps.
    A narrower saddle can have your sit bones hanging off the sides. All your weight will be on the soft tissues in between, and trust me, that will hurt! But don't get a saddle too much wider. A too-wide saddle can cause nasty chafing, and interfere with pedaling.

    There's a critical measurement you'll need to know when you shop for a saddle, and it's not easy to get. You'll need to know the distance between your sit bones - that is, your "ischial tuberosities". Again, these are the two bony knobs that you can feel supporting your weight if you sit on a desk corner, facing out.

    If you are married, I’d pay your credit card debt and we can become “friends”

    Does this offer apply for all thick married girls?
    The thick got my attention. I’m unable to read the rest. Can you explain to me like I’m your golden retriever
