- Thin/ low profile saddles
Comfort is mostly down to shape, not padding. I’ve got a Spesh Toupe on the road bike, that’s the only road saddle that didn’t give me numb balls.
Just dug out an old Flite SLR from the spares bin to put on the new XC bike I built up, and it’s not bad if I wear reasonable shorts. Biggest problem is that the hull is a bit too concave so it puts a bit of pressure between my sit bones instead of on them. So I have it a touch nose down and it’s ok, no numb balls..Posted 9 months ago
Currently got a charge spoon but think I need to loose a bit of height to get a longer dropper post onto the bike. What low profile saddles are there? Charge knife and fabric scoop look pretty thin. Any others to consider. Going on a 150mm travel full sus so out and out comfort not as important.
I’m sure this has come up before but I failed to find anything of any use via the site search.Posted 9 months ago
Would thin pedals not make it worse? Surely need thicker ones? The longest distance is saddle to pedal at low point so a thicker pedal would reduce this.
I’m hoping I can do it all in the saddle and having the post slammed (got about 10mm on current frame to play with). Also looking at seats clamps that don’t have a lip (gets a couple of mm). If not swapping to slightly shorter cranks could help (175mm currently though at 6’2″ these are a good length for me).Posted 9 months ago
I’d just cut it down, done it on several frames (steel) and never had a problem. No one wants long seat tubes these days!Posted 9 months agoDelSubscriber
for comfort it isn’tto break you in half.
But it’s good looking and low profile.
FIFY. i got one off a mate to use on my ss.
crikey i thought, this thing sure is firm. ah, it’ll be alright after a few uses, especially as i don’t sit down that much on a SS HT.
fast forward 6 weeks and i have a charge spoon. three weeks of using that and i’m still feeling tender bits where that f’ing thing was having a go at me, though it is improving.Posted 9 months ago
