Removed as the op has changed the original question to, what seems like spam.

I would bet that you spend a lot more time seated on the saddle on the road than you do on the mountain bike. It could be as simple as that. And longer and more frequent road rides should help, unless there is an underlying issue causing this that you have yet to determine.

I have exactly the same problem, no pain in the arse but pressure on the groin, ok for about 1.5 hrs then the next hour is unbearable, I'm constantly moving around and in the end I have to stand most of the ride home. Went to the LBS last week and took a test saddle to try, that was no good either, next saddle will be my fifth. Feel like I'm never going to find the right saddle.

i had that issue years ago when I rode on an overly stiff aluminum road bike. switching to a more forgiving bike and also replacing the seat with one that had a hole, has helped a great deal.

Maybe a bike-fit will help?

Obviously check all the basics around fit, etc. and in particular make sure the saddle is not too high. Most likely your saddle does not agree with you when it comes to long periods seated in a road application.

However before you give up you owe it to yourself to try SQ Lab 612 Ergowave. This saddle is unique in that it allows the rider to determine the exact distribution of pressure between the sit bones and perineum simply by where you sit on it. If you want you can place your sit bones all the way up on the back "shelf" and have zero contact else where.

OP: A number of folks on this forum and I have had good results with Meld saddles that are customized to your anatomy. If you encounter any fit issues with their saddles, they'll help with the troubleshooting.

I start to get damn uncomfortable, especially around the groin/seated area.


Where is the pain exactly? Groin or back side butt area? Both?

As the op hasnt reported back yet, if i may but in, i only get pain under the nuts, never on my bum. I feel the pain varies depending on what bib shorts i ware, the more padding the worse the pain gets, im assuming the padding gathers and puts pressure in the groin area resulting to pain, also the saddle contributes to.
Ive tried Berk list and lupina, carbon and padded, SMP glider and just tried fizik alianti. Going to LBS tomorrow to grab another saddle to test.

groin area takes the abuse from an overly stiff bike that. seems to be the area that takes the abuse. for me it wasn't about bike fit, but an unforgiving frame.

I find my c-59 and my Firefly Ti frame very accommodating. Years ago I had an aluminum bike, and i was in pain if the ride lasted more than a few hours. The 5200 was sort of in between, but closer to the colnago

Seriously - my problem was the same as your's. I might not be riding if it weren't for these saddles. Longest ride so far was 9.5 hours ride time. Got off the bike with my ass feeling as good as when I started. FWIW I must also use only Assos Equipe shorts (but that is the case with any saddle for me).
