Who rides WTB seats/saddles?
I've got a ~6yr old WTB Speed V now that I find comfy. Bluesky has a WTB Rocket V Race on sale for $25, which seems to be a great deal. Has anyone ridden both of these to compare them, or can anyone comment on the level of padding on the Rocket V? I'm not sure how much of a difference the 20mm width and padding difference will make. I'd hate to throw my money away if it's a really narrow feeling, unpadded rock of a seat.

The Speed is wider than the Rocket so it will feel different. I prefer the Rocket because the Speed feels too big/cushy.

i ride both (different bikes) and like both. comfort of a saddle really depends on where your sit bones are, if your sit bones aren't supported, it hurts. wider isn't always better. the saddle needs to fit you.

Got the Silverado on mine. I'm not too picky when it comes to saddles but it works for me. I'm a pretty tiny guy all around though so a thin/norrow saddle works well for me.

I have the WTB Vigo on my bike. I amused to it. Its not as slick as other saddles. I hate slipping around, comfortable and stable.

Well, I went ahead and ordered one along with my new Fox Flux helmet. Hopefully I can report on both soon.
