    Saddle choices - thin road or beefy trail version?

    I'll be using my Poprad for commuting, road riding, and hopefully a cross race or three and the training for it.

    I've got a Arionne knock-off Nashbar GR2 type saddle right now that I find comfortable for road riding. I'm planning on putting this on my Poprad for all the road/mix riding I'll be doing.

    But is this going to be a bad choice for CX training and such?
    Will I destroy it learning a good mount?
    I think constantly changing out the saddle is going to be a pain so maybe I should get WTB or something?

    Use the saddle you have. Replace if/when necessary.

    If you want to preserve your comfy saddle for your commute, get a second saddle and post. Then you can dial them both in for proper position and height (mark with electrical tape), making the switch easy.
