For those of us closer to or above 300, the "UberClydes" of the forum, what saddles have you found best/worst?
My experiences are as follows (all from when I weighed 290):
Best (for ROAD bikes ONLY - where you're seriously bent forward while riding):
Best (for cruisers & MTBs - where you're relatively upright):
Wide, padded cruiser saddles WITH springs
Worst (for ANY bike):
ANY Brooks saddle (I've pancaked them to the point of ruin within two weeks of riding)
Hard little ass-hatchet saddles made for racers who weigh less than their bikes
If you aren't an Uber, then consider that what works for you probably WON'T work for us. "Cyclists of substance" make significantly different demands on equipment than others even 50 lbs. lighter. I've heard from LOTS of cyclists between 230 and 260 who just love Brooks products. I've never heard from a SINGLE cyclist of 300 lbs. or over who had a good Brooks experience. Any out there???
