Okay, so I'm fairly new to really being interested in bikes. I just got through converting a Schwinn Traveler and since that cost more money than I bargained for, I'm doing the rest gradually. For instance my crank is a double crank and I'm using the inside ring and it looks kind of awkward, but it rides fine. So after a while I'm going to update the crank. Possibly an Orgin-8 but it might be a while. Anyways, another upgrade I'm looking into is a new saddles. Currently I am sitting on a POS roadmaster that was $1at a thrift store. Now I see everyone in here with their fancy race saddles that are thinner than air. Now I agree that these look really cool, however, I'm concerned with how comfortable they can actually be. I would like to have something in white to go with the white bar tape I'll be riding soon. But I don't want to spend $100 on a saddle because I'm poor. Any suggestions and insight on race saddles? I don't like the way brooks saddles look either so there is that.
