I remember you posting about getting a saddle a while back. What did you end up getting? I need a new saddle for my new old bike and was just wondering what you settled for.

He was going to buy an $80 saddle and I was wondering what it was. Or if he even bought it.

Maybe I took it wrong but you seemed a little snappy at first.

Well anyway, glad to hear your numbness is better. Now you can enjoy riding. That was real nice of LowCel, though. He is not one to be a tightwad, that's for sure. I know that if he can help someone to further their enjoyment in riding, he is always there to help.

Nope, sorry if I sounded snappy.

What does it matter how old you are? I have some friends who know more about bikes than most shop owners do.

The saddle on my new old bike is gel. I have to get something better later. But then I haven't even received the bike yet so maybe it will still be okay. Just that the original owner said that maybe I should go for one that is not gel.

what kind of seats you got on your MTB?? I'd just put one of those on it, or at least close to the same type..

can't look any worse than those brooks saddles.

if it's a road bike, don't be afraid to say it. i just got one and i'm quite happy with it. compliments the XC stuff pretty well.

and i agree, you want to be supported by the sit bones, not the gooch.

15 years old and massive leg muscles, comparable to a tree trunk.

I agree that my age means I have less experience, but Sui was just asking how I liked my new seat.
