Aftermarket saddle suggestions for Suede
I just purchased a 2006 Giant Suede DX and although I haven't had much time to ride it or to adjust anything, I've noticed the saddle is rather uncomfortable. My seat hurts my seat! Granted, my previous bike was an MTB with a fairly rigid saddle, so I figured there would be a 'break-in' period. But I was wondering if anybody else felt their Suede saddle wasn't up to par? The big reason I ask is that before buying the Suede online, I test rode a Townie and was instantly comfortable on it. I assumed it would be the same with the Giant Suede...
Any suggestions for a good aftermarket saddle for a 27-year-old guy that would suit this style cruiser/comfort bike? And BTW: How does one 'try out' saddles at the LBS? can you just bring in your bike and swap saddles out for test rides? What is good saddle-testing protocol?
