    Bought a new saddle :-)

    http://www.rei.com/product/736824/se...er-saddle-mens

    The standard saddle that came with the 7.2FX gave me intense groin pain and discomfort. The mechanic at my local Trek store said it is their best selling seat. This thing freaking rocks. Personally, I prefer it over the brooks b17. Very comfortable, very durable, and the price isn't too bad.

    How far do you ride? That looks like a great saddle for 'round-the-block trips, but way too squishy for long hauls.

    About 12 miles round trip. It works for me even when I do go on long trips.
