Large bike seat to fit dahon foldable bike
I have a Dahon foldable bike. It has the old fashion break (going backwards on the peddles) and three speeds. The seat is very uncomfortable and I have replaced it once already. Does anyone know of a really comfortable seat that can put installed on this bike? I ride for exercise and not a racers or anything. Any help is appreciated.

Welcome to BF! 1,000 people will have over 900 different opinions about saddles and there are countless posts here about them. See what you local retailers have and suggest. The dimensions and configuration of your backside count a lot and thereís no way to know what youíll find comfortable. Thatís why your local retailers should be able to help.

I'm a Brooks B17 believer. Well, the Imperial version.
I'd go to a big bike shop or REI and just keep trying saddles until you find one that fits. I suggest REI, because with their one year return policy, you can ride a saddle for a week, return it, try another, repeat as needed.

Cheers and welcome.
B17 here as well. A soft saddle with a lot of cushion may seem like a good idea, especially now when you're sore. But your weight is supposed to rest on your sit bones, not on soft tissue. I'd suggest you start your tests with saddles that seem hard at first. And actually ride them, not just sit on them.
