I may be using this thing wrong! Ha! This would no be unusual for me.

I didn't buy a spring and had no idea you could change the settings! It took me all my time to work out I had it the right way round! Should I have bought a spring with it? My back is notably worse since fitting it. I must be have done something wrong!
You haven't put it in backwards per chance?

Soft spring is rated for 100-140lb riders
Medium spring is rated for 140-180lb riders
Firm spring is rated for 180-220lb riders

You should be using a medium spring version like mine.

Mine hardly moves (perceptibly) when I am riding, you only feel it move when you hit a bump. I think it must be moving enough to wipe out all the small vibrations however.

Thanks everyone! I have altered the setting and was better this morning - I think I wasn't heavy enough for the setting it was on. I am going to alter it a bit more for journey home and think it will make a difference again.

I have no idea which saddle to buy. I think I am going to go for this for £10.90 from e-bay.... View attachment 29363 ...just because it looks comfortable.

I cycle around 40 miles a day and the saddle I have feels like bone on bone at the moment and I am doing about 10 miles a day standing up cycling!

I am also looking at buying a suntour seat post. Has anyone any experience of this? The reviews looks good. Has anyone used any cheaper alternatives which seem just as good?

Tecga3,
An ebay link would be useful.
