What saddle do you use?

Post by Bearbonesnorm » Mon Jul 04, 2011 8:14 pm

I've a number of different saddles on a number of different bikes. None have ever given me any trouble ... until last week. The saddle in question was an On One Big Nose which has been fine but after putting in some very long days, it decided it didn't like me anymore.

I've always considered myself to have an 'arse of leather' and very rarely wear padded shorts ... again it's never caused any issues. So, what saddle do you favour for big days out?

I really like my Bontrager rythym seat,with ti rails got it off STW for a bargain.

It's on my Zesty but I need one for my Swift.

I always wear padded shorts and lube them up if on a long one ;)

Selle Italia Flite.

But last time someone asked this, I got heckled for never sitting down and thus having a worthless opinion on saddles.

I've got a spoon on another bike, also got the gusset version of a spoon on something else ... might have to be a little swapping going on before weekend ;)

SDG Allure Women's on my 69er; Brooks on my commuting and a Selle San Marco Rolls on my single speed.

All good; my favourite is the Brooks.
