I just received a new saddle from Prefromance Bike. It is a kickin' retro gold Schwinn Stingray saddle. No, it is not a banana seat. The problem is, is that I bought it mainly because it looked cool and reminded me of the Gold Schwinn Stingray I had as a child (also it was on sale). The saddle is very hard and unforgiving. I know very little about saddles, so this is where I need the help. What is the difference between a MTB and road saddle? What are the different variations of each style?
