Seriously, it's real hard for anyone to recommend a *comfortable* saddle. You're going to have to try a few. What I find comfortable for all-day rides might feel like a brick to the next guy.

Some still do call it a seat. But would you call a horses saddle a seat?

Seat just makes it sound like you are just sitting there. If you want to ride... then you're on a saddle. But- saddlepost sounds like some sort of equestrian term.
