Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

Thoughts on this saddle?

http://www.pricepoint.com/detail/159...Amp-Saddle.htm

I'd like to buy a new saddle. mine's not very comfortable.

I dont really know much about saddles, this looks comfortable enough, but its only 25 dollars. so i'm somewhat skeptical.

k thnx

Man, I LOVE my Rolls San Marco saddle. It's the most comfy saddle I've ever ridden. You can find them on ebay pretty cheap [$65]

I have always found the Sette saddles to be uncomfortable, but for that price it may be worth a shot.

got mine for 20. it sure is nice.

if i've been riding it exclusively for a while, it's a bit of a surprise when i hop on to my other bike with its thin little saddle. sort of a hello there! moment...

I have a white perf, a black and a neon yellow on the way... My saddle of choice. Although I just got a Bassauno Selle that's pretty light and fairly comfy. We'll see how I feel after Saturday's race though.

Ugh don't do it, Giant also used these saddles, they're way too soft.

My experience with saddles is that they're very much a hit or miss thing. What works for someone else might not work for you. I try to stick with the same basic design.
