    has anyone used one of these? i'm in need of a new saddle and i'm sick of chafing and soreness in the "saddle area". i'm not sure what kind to get, and i know that it's a personal issue really, but this seems like a nice one. any input?

    Wear cycling shorts and stop wearing jeans.

    Yes. Chamois are nice.

    Seats are all a personal preference.

    ....usually a very impersonal preference. The seat chooses you.... not your choice.
    It's kinda like the sorting hat in Harry Potter.
    Maybe it's because your bike (in your profile) does not properly fit you. Clearly it's the wrong size frame, if you're having to have your seat jammed all the way down to the frame. I suggest taking your bike to a shop and have them properly fit and adjust everything correctly, then maybe it will be more comfortable. Otherwise, sell it and get a smaller bike that fits you properly.
