I'll be getting my first touring bike (thanks to the help of the awesome folks on here) in the next little bit- probably a Surly Disc Trucker- and after having tried the bike once at the shop already had issues with the stock saddle.
I'm a heavy fella at 350 lbs. and ride pretty much exclusively always sitting. I'll mainly just be sticking to paved roads with the odd paved track thrown in. Looking for something that will stay comfy for up to a hundred miles under a big butt and last a long time
I've done some searches and have it kind of narrowed down to either a Brooks B17 or San Marco Regal, but definitely would like to hear some more options.
The saddle is extremely important to me (as I'm planning to do a LOT of miles this summer to help me lose weight and just have fun on in general) so I don't mind spending money on it- lets say up to $200. The one on my current bike (a Specialized "fuze" saddle [IIRC]) absolutely kills me- especially in the nether regions and butt. The one on the Surly was marginally better, but coming from a hell-like saddle, that's still not very good.
I know it's an extremely personal thing, but just looking for some potential advice from fellow Clyde's!
