Worth getting and worth keeping.
I have received a lot of helpful advice in these forums. I was told to give my saddle and what a sat on the saddle with time and sooner or later they both would get used to each other. That turned out to be true as well. Still my stock Saddle was just a touch irritating after about 40-50 miles. Because I plan on doing my first century in February I decided to take a look at getting a new saddle. I have looked at a few saddles from Specialized and Terry and decided to give the Selle SMT a try. I cannot tell you how comfortable this saddle is right off the rack. The only thing that stopped me from bringing the saddle home was the price. I decided to sleep on it and road home to think it over. I was told that every saddle has to be broke in but I can tell you that if this saddle gets any more comfortable I will feel like I am sitting on air.
As I sat at home thinking about the saddle my wife asked me what I was thinking about. I sheepishly said I had been looking at a new saddle today. She said I should have bought it if I liked it and I then told her how much it cost and what a surprise, she said if it is that comfortable it was worth it. She said, never short change yourself on shoes and what you sit on has to be at least as important. I think I have a keeper.
