New Bike!! Need new saddle
Just took delivery on a new Trek 7500FX. Great bike!!! Fast for a hybrid. Upped my average speed 2.1 mph and wasn't even trying to go faster. Once I get used to the bike and get it setup the way I want, think the mph will increase some more.
The LBS ordered the bike with regular brakes, but received the bike with disc brakes. Sold it to me without charging for them. Never used disc brakes before, so will have to see if I like them.
Anyway, the saddle that came on the bike is tiny and HARD - and my butt lasts only 30-45 minutes before complaining loudly (I'm 225# and the current saddle just doesn't give enough support). I've got a gel seat on my Mtn. Bike and like it a lot and want to put one on the Trek. Has anyone had any experience with the Terry Liberator saddles? Any other suggestions from folks using road bike gel saddles?
Thanks for your input!!
