Hey guys. Have 2 bikes with the prev generation S works toupe. I have over 30,000 k on them and have done rides over 300km without issue.

Now, I had a sore knee at the end of last year which i assumed was due to poor cleat poisoning but ended up being due to a broken pedal. Pedal is now fixed and I believe cleat and seat position are back to normal. But i am now getting a sore spot on my right sit bone. This has been going over 6 months. I am riding less this year than last. Wondering if this is would be helped by a saddle change or whether just riding more i will get used to it.

See a bike fitter or physio if it is consistent even when not riding..

If it is only sore immediately after a ride then yes new saddle time most likely.

Seriously, if you are not allergic to some weight, try Cobb Cycling saddles. They have a great testing program.
I tested 4 saddles, they work really good without (thick) chamois. Personally i favor Max saddle over Randee.

Ax Lightness Vial EVO D
Paduano Racing Fidia
