Hard Times

Hey, you ever just ride on the plastic shell of a bike seat instead of a real bike seat? I did it for a couple of years when I was young and it suited me just fine on the frequent but short rides I was taking at the time. I thought I could probably handle the pain associated with adjusting to such a thing again; after all...



 
As might have been expected, my experiment was a total failure and the plastic shell pictured below was replaced with the saddle sitting on the wall behind it after only 2 days of trying. I prefer a fairly firm saddle, but this thin plastic shell turned out to be too much for my older, wussy self.
 
 
 
What's the worst excuse for a saddle you've ever used? I'll bet there are some doozies... let me know in the comments!

Does it have titanium rails?

Please forgive my comment without a saddle story. I just wanted to say that the "Princess Bride" is one of my all time favorites.

Steve - Nope. Kryptonite with a dash of unobtainium, otherwise known as steel.

Pondero - Anybody want a peanut?

Cary Elwes is awesome, I love that guy! As for seats, my bottom's not too picky I don't think. I did recently dial in my seat though (bmx seat on a mountain bike, ha!) and my bottom is very happy now! As for that plastic...*thing* you posted, just ouch! O_O
