Anyone with any biking experience knows that finding just the right saddle can eat up quite a bit of time, money, and leave you with a box of "not quite the one" saddles. I'm wondering if maybe people would be interested in pooling our resources and listing out any extra saddles you have laying around so that we as a group can "test ride" them without committing to a purchase until we find something that fits right.

If anyone is interested in participating in the "Saddle Club" please list what you have following this template....
Make:
Model:
Width:
Materials:
Style (comfort, racing, etc)

Agreements for loaning, returns, et-al, can be handled by PM.

thanks. I have to measure a "comfort saddle" I'm not going to use because the tongue is too wide for me and chafes the inside of my legs horribly. I'll list it here.

The saddle on my ebike can not be worse. My butt can hurt with only 20-minute riding.

Any C9 seat is great. I tried 3 different models all great. Memory foam cushion. Has air vents in middle which is a must. Have to have rear springs and not just rubber for suspension. Very comfortable

Part of the problem with saddle comfort is that no saddle will be comfortable for a long ride until the rider is conditioned to riding on a saddle. Generally, the most comfortable looking saddle will likely become painful on a long ride because it will restrict movement and use of some important muscles. You can’t sit on the muscles that your are using and stay comfortable.

Clothing, saddle height, angle, and fore and aft position along with riding position can make as much difference as the saddle itself.

I don’t like most saddles, but I did like the older Selle Flite saddles. Now I ride on a Fizik Aliante and have been very happy with it. It is of course a very personal choice and one size does not fit all.
