Terry saddles

hey folks,

just wondering if anyone is using a Terry saddle. I'm still looking for the road to butt nirvana and noticed Terry offer a 30 day money back guarantee (refund or exchange).

I realise my butt is different to yours (my wife reckons mine's HOT!) but I'm just curious to hear from anyone who's happy with a Terry.

cheers

I think this thread will help you. Getting used to a new saddle

Also, I recently purchased a Terry Liberator for $34 at Performance. The above site wanted $60.

I'm still riding with the Terry, but it took more than a week to get used to it.

I've had very good luck with my Liberators. I've got 2 of them. The fact that it only took you a week to get used to it is a positive thing.... I also like the Specialized Alias, it is a bit firmer than the Liberator but once I got used to it I like it just as well.

I have an old, Terry Liberator Sport. Don't see that model in their current lineup, though I think the Ti Race might be similar. The nose on my Sport is narrower than the current Liberator. Guess when my current Terry saddle is done in (if it ever happens), I'll have to see what they have closest, as I really like it!

I have a Terry Fly. It's fine for rides of less than three hours. Anything over that, and it's get's real uncomfortable for me. It's a bit too rounded in the rear portion. I like something wider.
