    Socks before or after trousers, but never before pants. That's the rule.

    Me with the ribs. Still no better two weeks later, tried to run about and play touch rugby last night but no chance!

    Glad you're okay though mate, sounds like a nasty one that could've been much worse!

    Any of you ever found a reasonable way of measuring your sit bones at home?

    I tried that at work the other day but don't think the bit of card I had was thick enough to really work. Have to see if I can find something more suitable around the house and give it another go.

    Another option I've seen is putting tin foil on the stairs and the give in the carpet beneath it should allow you to create some tell tale creases in the foil.

    Cover a cushioned stool or chair in tin foil, flatten and smooth it as much as possible, then sit on it firmly. Lift your feet off the floor for maximum depression on the foiled cushion. You should leave two circular impressions in the foil where your arse bones are. Measure from centre to centre.

    Don't think we've got any seats with a suitable cushion for that unfortunately, might have to try wrapping the kneel pad thing the other half uses in the garden and see how that pans out.

    To try and find a better fitting saddle.

    For saddle fitment, I'd guess.

    Speak to a professional fitter as well though: I used to have a Prologo saddle which was selected using the sit bones method, then on my last fitting I was told that it was far too narrow and I swapped for a wider Specialized model.

    Also, set up the Defy as a permanent turbo trainer yesterday. Was a bit nippy so decided to put on a base layer. Result: 30 minutes of leg-breaking, sweaty misery.

    Load of nonsense though. Saddles aren't made to fit anybody specifically as saddle manufacturers aren't biomechanists, they tend to be product developers doing a job without the thought of where your pelvis is interacting with the EVA foam they have to have in their product to make it commercially viable. Pressure mapping for different riding styles on different saddles is as far as they go.

    A professional fitter will only have knowledge on how your fit on a bike works to get the most efficient propulsion and they're bloody good at it too. Although the more expensive saddles are often a complete waste of money unless you're conscious of the amount of grams you need on your bike (in which case less foam, more carbon for the flex is the best, aids venous return and all that).

    The best advice is to try as many saddles as you can on a bike in the shop that is as similar to yours as possible but you will never really know unless you ride it for a prolonged period of time.

    The 2 saddles Ive had most joy out of are Rido R2,looks weird but is designed to take weight off the perineal area,they do a racing version as well,the other one is Brooks B17,but that's because I like to think of myself as a bike tourer and for that,Brooks is the best bar none,just takes a bit more looking after and a bit of breaking in due to it being quite thick leather
