    Allay Saddles?

    Hey y'all,

    I'm looking at getting a new saddle. One of the options I'm considering is one of the Topeak Allay saddles. Anybody have any experience or opinions on these?

    Thanks!

    Looks a bit awkward; but interesting - am also shopping for another saddle. Will follow closely what reactions come in. Up till now tried and an Sq lab saddle which caused lower back pain and a specialized BG avatar which caused numbness and pain... Saw that Allay saddles can be pumped up!

    I used one for awhile. It was very comfortable. Mine started to squeak after a week or so, so I returned it. I think it's worth trying if you buy it somewhere where you can return it.

    Terry saddle is very comfy; it seems to "give" a bit making the ride less harsh on cobbles. Still not completely happy; as after a 2 hour ride, I feel a little bit unpleasant in the left nut... - Maybe an anatomy matter... still think about going to the shop again. (....sheeez)

    Well thanks for the replies. A friend told me that I probably need a wider saddle. I'm tempted to try the Profile Design TT saddle. Thanks again guys and gals!
