I just got my first road bike, and it's very comfortable except the stock saddle. I've ridden it a few times trying to get used to what's on there, but it just isn't working. However, I'm not quite sure what to get.
How do I measure for seat size on a road bike? I know my hips are tilted forward so I need less width than a cruiser and I probably shouldn't just go buy the widest saddle on the market.*
What have you had good experiences on?
Would a small cruiser seat cause problems with the width of the nose?
Before you ask, my LBS's have a very limited selection, so there's not much try-before-you-buy. I'd like something relatively inexpensive, preferably with springs as I have to ride 1/2 mile on gravel from my house before I reach pavement.
*Which is exactly what I did for my 3-speed, and it worked out perfectly.
