Feedback on *NEW* (2006 or later) Bontrager "Race X Lite" and/or "Race Lite" Saddle
I am looking to replace the stock saddle that came on my 2007 Trek 6500
The stock saddle on the 6500 is the Bontrager Race Basic Lux.
I find this saddle to be a little hard on the "soft bits" (as the catalog likes to describe it
Does anyone have any feedback on the current versions of either the:
I am interested in any comments on the *new* version of these two saddles that INCLUDE a center channel as pictured below. Bontrager said the channel was added to these saddles in 2006.
Race X Lite
Also, can anyone confirm that either of these saddles actually exist?
My LBS does NOT have either saddle in stock, and they said they are not aware of any Bontrager saddles with a center channel. I called Bontrager about this, and they said the version with the center channel were introduced in 2006 and that my LBS could order either for me. None the less, if someone can validate that they have seen either of these saddles in their current form (or better yet, post a picture) I'd appreciate it.
Thanks for any advice you can offer
PS: I realize there are many other brands of saddles out there.
But it is these two saddles about which I'm trying to get more information.
