    Saddle Recommedations

    Just got a new tri bike that came with a Selle Italia Trans Am saddle which I am not a big fan of. Recommendations please?

    Depending on how aggressively you position yourself on the saddle, you'll probably want to look for one that has a nose with more padding than usual. Trial and error is really the best way to find a good saddle though. I recommend starting with an inexpensive one. Performance Bike has one or two house brands (Forte) which may work.

    Another one to consider would be the Blackwell Research Adamo ISM seat:

    I'm thinking of trying it out sometime later this year just for s***s and giggles.

    I have one of these...Selle San Marco Azoto...I like it a lot.

    Fredo, you're my older brother and I love you...but don't ever take sides, with anyone, against the family again...ever.

    fizik arione tri &
    fizik arione tri2

    They have worked the best for me during the past year.

    The tri 1 is a little more forgiving and comfortable.

    The tri 2 is a little tougher to sit on unless you are hauling @$$. But it is virtually flat. As I slide forward, I don't slide down. Makes me feel more efficient.

    A couple of my friends love the Profile Airstryke. I rode it for a couple of months, but it was too cushiony for me.

    Good luck,
    Snookdude

    another recommendation for the fizik arione tri. i added a desoto 5mm-gel seat cover for 70.3-length races and training, and now just leave it on. it makes up for the lack of padding in tri-shorts.

    What is the difference between the regular arione (which I have and love on my road bike) and the tri version?
