saddle review

Finding the right saddle has been tricky. I started of with a Fiziks, non cut away, and found it comfortable for the sit bones but uncomfortable on the taint. So tried a Specialized Alias, cut away, and hated it. Very uncomfortable and numbed the taint. so now I have a Selle SMP TRK. It has a little more padding than the other two saddles, has a huge cut out, and looks like the Concorde with its bent down nose. Well after three rides...not very long ones, I have felt no discomfort whatsoever. The sit bones are happy and the taint is real happy
So that is my short report. Good luck to those in search of a good saddle!

seen the smp trk and read reviews which were good. some said the hardest part was setting up the seat and finding the right position. is that true?
