Different seats for mountain and road bikes?
Would you need different seats for a mountain bike and a road bike? I realize a road bike has a lower position in the drops but if the handlebars on both are in similar positions woiuldn't the riding position be similar?
ummm, I ride road saddles on mtb's but -I ride more XC position and I have narrow hips.
My current saddle is a bit scooped-wider @ the back, still a bit narrower than most I see on mtb.
If you jump a lot, a wider seats better coming off the drops.
XC, a wider seat rubs too much if its wide.
this seats o.k.
I've tried Selle Italia Nitrox, Velo Plush, WTB, Selle Italia again and then this.
XC does run a higher seat position, than say gravity racing. Different bikes though.
MTB is kinda an obsolete term. The classic ATB is closest to what is refered to as XC, IMO.
I don't use the same type of seat on all my mountain bikes so I doubt I would use it on a roadie.
