my children....OUCH

well, i officailly demoed my seat, completely twisted the metal rails, with my manly parts.
and it was the worst pain ive ever felt, i dropped a 3 footer from a near stand still, yes not too smart i kno.
so any suggestions for a good saddle, mines pretty much useless as of now, its on a 50 degree angle point to the back left
i didnt break nething else except maybe my pride...

That saddle is a bit ugly, but it'll probably hold up better.

Another,slightly better looking free riding saddle:

well you can get a MTB saddle but one that is going to hold up to that (if you're always hitting your saddle on drops) is going to be expensive. I have a BMX saddle on my SS bike, and even the cheapest $20 BMX saddle is going to have 8mm or 9mm cro-mo rails. Downside is they are a little shorter, (which is better for me) but that makes them lots stronger and harder to bend the rails... Get a Primo or a Redline seat. I am a big guy and it has held up better than either saddle from my trek or my hardrock...

I thought you really shouldn´t be hitting your saddle when you come off jumps? I always thought that it could be painful

OMG HOW DID YOU NOT DIE?

You hit your sack on directly on the seat enough to bend cro-moly rails. How are you still alive man!? I jumped too enthusiastically on my bike one time and sacked myself and I like couldn't breathe! To land straight on them hard enough to bend a seat, MAN!

Don't do it again or else I will feel your e-pain!

My seat kinda leans to one side for the same reason. Not fun, funny thing is, the saddle feels MORE comfortable than ever so whatever.

Probably, no ones perfectly symetrical really, having it slanty might feel better cause it fits that way.
