No bike seat thread?im looking for a comfy bike seat for my Trek Soho S.I would like something that doesn't feel like I've been sitting on a rail after a few hours of riding. At the same time, I dont want any fluffy, or gel seat. those are way too heavy, and ugly.I could use new bike shorts, what good padding is there?pic unrelated
>>1962182This looks like the saddle used by the winner of the last RAAM. He obviously would recommend it.
carbon toupe clone from aliexpress
>>1962182>those are way too heavyBro if you are whining about ten more grams you'd better get on a diet that would be more efficient.>and ugly.I didn't know that was a performance indicator.
I like my prologo dimension saddle. It helps also with staying in the right spot since it's a short saddle (you don't slide on the forward thin part of the saddle).
Charge Spoon for me. I'm uncultured and I just like it.
This is what peak comfort looks like. DDK comfort. I'll never use another saddle.
i fell for the saddle meme years ago and anything else feels weird. have a c13 on my newest bike and a leather swift on the other.
I tried a lot before finding something even acceptable (Bike Planet ARS).
Actually saddle design is more important than saddle immediate comfort. If it's too hard for long rides just get a bib or some ass.
>>1962388Really? A $40 dollar saddle?Do explain. >>1962390It's not uncomfortable during the ride. It's the next day. Well 3 days until I can ride again without my ass cheeks feeling sore. Am I sitting wrong or is my current seat too narrow? Bike shorts help. But not completely
>>1962207I like mine. it's 45mm, good if your sit bones are narrow. my spesh toupe clone is similar width but less padding.
>>1962438sit bone masurement significantly underestimated how wide a saddle would be comfortable for me. Sit bones 120mm, recommended saddles 140-145mm, comfortable saddles 160mm
>>1962221I also tried a lot.Favourite was a SqLab 612 i think.But i also got a C13 at a sale for around 120 bucks and love it.Best saddle i used till now.
>>1962212What kind of bike? I can see this on Omafiets but cant imagine how you'd achieve mtb or road posture without it interfering.
>>1962638I have one on this...
>>1962644And this. I am 5'10 and 85kg and have wide sit bones nearly 150mm. Standard saddles are so uncomfortable for me but I can ride all day on these.
>>1962648Ask me how I know you stole it
>>1962644Huh... interesting. But don't you keep hitting it when you pedal and rub the back of your leg? Or you're wide enough that your legs pass it on sides when you pedal?Why i'm asking because i have rather wide frame and standard race saddles tend to somewhat press into my crack as well. But whenever i've tried wider sadles i keep hitting and rubbing their "ears" with my fat tights so in the end the narrow ones work better. Just need to pedal harder to reduce sitting pressure.
>>1962649It's my bike >:( I paid for it with money at Brompton junction London>>1962655I am fairly average guy build but I have honestly never had an issue with legs rubbing this saddle.
>>1962657>didn't mention how many bongdollars it costyou aren't a brompton owneryou stole it
https://www.rivbike.com/products/saddle-182-55-plastic-vegan-comfortableCurt Lindström from Revander Cycles did it once again, I would call this /n/ approved.
Bontrager's Aeolus Comp 145mm. It's ok.
I personaly fell for the prostate hole thing and now i couldn't ride a saddle without a big hole.>>1962388but fortunately the days of autistic extreme sensitivities are over for me. i don't know if this pic is a meme but you could have tried em in a store or sent back some of em
>>1962182brooks b17 is the only saddle i'll ride that isn't intended to be held by the knees or grabbed mid-air for steez at some point. it isn't a meme, it's good. it does have a break-in period, though.
>>1962182whats a good aliexpress mtb seat?or something equally cheapor like idk if its an mtb seat i want just not some super light aero roadie thing but also not a huge sprung cushion thing just like a very average all round seatmy pelvis seems pretty average i think not particularly narrow or widegonna be using it for mtb riding and longer rides on the road lasting for many hours so need comfymy standards rly arent high though anythings better than the awful shit that cam on my bikes
>>1962182i like this guyi think this might be the most comprehensive guide to saddles ive seenhttps://youtu.be/QMy_2pR4Mzghttps://youtu.be/B94mvr3mQechttps://youtu.be/fF2QndtnMN8
>>1964663Grow up and get a set of bib shorts man
Dad just gave me picrel, its like sitting on a couch, comfy as can be, i ride a upright bike so this saddle was the best i could find
>>1964666noewhow is that gonna help anything anyway?no amount of daiper is gonna solve an uncomfortable seatwhy is that your fucking response to someone asking for a seat recommendation in a seat thread anyway... to not buy a seat?the fuck is wrong with you?
>>1964663the $16-17 one off amazon that's a copy of the selle royal is the best cheap seat I've tried out of a dozen
>>1964863several brandsmsdada and ziqui
I use a b17 brooks. Im not a hipster or a fag (i like pusy). I hate that it weights so much, like a fucking brick compared to a san marco or other nicer seats. My ass is happy.
