    investment paid off today

    couple of years ago I was going through a bargin bin at a bike shop.Picked up a saddle looked well made thought it was worth the 10 dollar asking price.Today after moving it from a shelf in the garage to another in the basement I installed it on the old schwinn.I looked it over and it is a Specialzed BG saddle.Took it for a ride today 1 1/2 hours and it felt good.

    I got an E3 saddle the same way years ago. Lightweight and with Ti rails, at $15 or so, it was worth a try.

    Verdict: Hard, but once you get used to it, comfortable. Now sold as a Kontact saddle for $120.

    My spouse tried a BG saddle on the back of our tandem and she was not impressed/happy.
    She is currently riding an old Bianchi/Avocet racing saddle, made in Italy.
    Different butts like different saddles?!

    Um, yeah.

    My long-time riding buddy swears by Selle Italia, has a Flite Ti on his old Epic...been using them as long as I've known him. I sat on his ONCE, and even tried one EXACTLY like it for a day. It was like sitting on a pine cone. MAIN REASON: sit bone width.

    I ride a Selle SMP Trk, 165mm width V. 130mm for SI. Plus, I like the full-length cut-out.
