For 20yrs my bike weak spot was my butt to saddle interface. I tried a lot of saddles and a lot of bike diapers without great success. My day 3 of a week long road trip I'd be uncomfortable all ride and I might need to take a day or two off to rest. Then I stumbled on a saddle that worked for me and I threw away the bike diapers....greatest thing I ever did and have been able to ride basically as much as I want without any saddle/butt issues at all. I've since branched out and have 3 different brands/models that work for me. That's been 10yrs of bike bliss. It's definitely worth hunting down a great saddle as it makes all the other comfort solutions unnecessary. I can get some idea of how a saddle will work based on dimensions and shape, but really it comes down to buying it and trying it out for a few days. That can get expensive so now that I have 3 good options I pretty much just stick with those and figure if they ever stop making them I'll have a few spares so I can find another option to replace the defunct saddle model.
