(cross-posted from Commuting) (Is cross-posting rude or frowned upon?)
I was planning on using some kind of suspension in the seat on my new Surly, but there is so little seatpost showing that it looks like a sprung saddle is my only choice for providing a little cush for the tush.
Does anyone have experience with both saddles and can provide some feedback on the differences between them. The 72 is lighter which is a good thing, but Bill at Wallingford Bike suggested that the 72 might not be a good choice for a heavier rider (I'm ~200 lbs).
I need something to absorb a bit more shock off my back. I ride quite upright and so need/want a wider saddle. Bike is used for a little of everything--commuting, bike trails, simple off-road, and hopefully some light touring this summer.
I await your wisdom. Thanks.
