Anyone know of some nice Japanese saddles other than Kashimax [which i guess aren't that nice when it comes to comfort]?
there's fujita belt - kind of the japanese brooks. they aren't around anymore so you'll have to ebay it. i've got one on my beater bike and its a little less stiff than brooks.
Look for anything by Ariake. Mines a Jaguar 2 and, again, not very comfortable. Gives righteous support when sprinting in the saddle though. Track saddles are made to not flex--great on the track--not so much on the street. Wear bike shorts!!
not generally known for comfort.
