    Nashbar Men's Sport Saddle?

    http://www.nashbar.com/profile.cfm?c...Ride%2DSaddles





    Any thoughts? I'm 230 and ride up to 50 miles on paved paths.

    What do you like that is under $50 or so?

    Thanks!

    could work for you, but i can't use 'soft' saddles for more than 15 miles... (too uncomfortable; for my heavy urban bike i use a Brooks Flyer, all others have B-17s)

    but at $20, you could always return it if the saddle proves unsatisfactory?

    I've found the Terry Fly at Performance Bike stores before at $69. But I believe the price has gone up. That seat looks similar but looks can be deceiving.

    Once you find a saddle that works, it would be hard to go for anything less. Then the money spent on all day comfort is worth it!

    I'm not sure what type of brand of bike you have. But knowing what I know now, I wouldn't cut back on the saddle. Even if I had a $50 bike, I'd still use the same saddle. I say spend more if you really want to enjoy the ride!

    I replaced an original worn Selle' saddle on the cheap with this thing and find it oddly comfortable. Hard as a rock and cheap as dirt, but must be a match for my butt. Definitely a personal choice -- and once you get a good one you'll know.

    Wow, that's an awesome price! Maybe I will just get both and see what I like. I keep thinking I want a firm narrow saddle, but I hate to invest a bunch of $ to find out. I ride more upright than you on a hybrid, do you think that one would still be comfortable if you sat up more and had more weight on the seat instead of the bars?
