Saddle and bib recommandation

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Saddle and bib recommandation

Hey,

I am planning to buy from this website:
Buy Road Bikes & Parts at Ribble Cycles | Online Bike Shop

I need a new saddle. The one I got on my bike is very low end and I am not comfortable.
Saddles can be found here:
Buy Road Bikes & Parts at Ribble Cycles | Online Bike Shop

My budget is sub 100$, same for the bibs.

I am 177cm tall, 65-66kg and waist is 31''.

OK, caveat emptor. That site is a nice site, very reliable but it's in England... where are you? How are you going to return something that doesn't fit / doesn't work for you from Montreal to England?

Ribble is great if you know exactly what you want and what size you are. Bibs... ok, if you are certain of your size but saddles are a try and return item for most of us.

Saddles are a very personal item; try finding a bike shop that lets you try saddles out before you buy one.

If you can find a Specialized dealer near you, they are supposed to have a device to measure your sit bones, to help improve the chance of a fit.
