I just recently bought my bike. The bike I test drove was a trek 3500. I ended up buying a trek 3700 due to the double walled rims and more suspension travel. Well the seat was also one of the upgrades and it's not very comfortable. Any suggestions for a comfortable bike saddle? I'm was looking at this
I'm going to go out on a limb and say NO FREAKING WAY on that saddle. Big puffy gel saddles are great to sit on in the store or to ride 2 blocks, and that's it.
Stock saddles are usually pretty lame but make sure it's adjusted correctly. I also recommend a decent set of bike shorts and give your kiester time to acclimate to it. If you still don't like it after say, 100 miles of riding then ask your shop if you can demo some alternates.

Yeah, go look at that saddle and tell me you could even think about 100 miles on it. Not that many people ride 100 miles on a mountain bike but... unless you didn't mean all at once.
