    This one's pretty excellent:

    Not going to be under $30 though. Luckily this, highly recommended in the other thread that's STILL ON THE FIRST PAGE, does slip under that mark.

    That area is called the taint , the more you ride the less it hurts. Also wearing padded riding undies helps. The first longer rides of the season always makes that area a little tender.

    I've found that the secret is to adjust the angle of the seat so that the weight is distributed just right between the butt bones, and the taint. I like the front of the saddle tipped up just enough to relieve the pressure off my bony aft, but not so much as to crush the area around my squishy bits.

    I like to use WTB Rocket or Bontrager with a gell insert in the "junk pocket". A great area for savings can be the "take off" box at the LBS. I have found saddles listing for $50+ for $5 or 10$ at times. I always look when walking through a shop and snag the nice ones for my inventory of replacement parts.

    Try the Inline HD Mountain Bike saddle. Look at the one on my bike. It was the first thing I changed out!

    That isn't a saddle, that's a sofa. For serious time in the saddle that thing is going to hurt with all that excess padding. Maybe good for short trips to the 7-11 to load up on junk food...

    Maybe so! But for an old man riding for the first time in 47 years, I'll take the sofa any day over that little plastic tube up my arse!

    Just keep it in mind, your butt will probably do the informing if you start doing long rides. Try reading this article for some information on the subject http://www.jimlangley.net/crank/bicycleseats.html

    FWIW I've been riding bikes for about 47 years, learned long ago big padded saddles are not the way to go...
