- what saddles do you use
Used to use the Velo 1205 (spoon and a load of others) which is fine for average rides but found the WTB Rocket/Volt stays comfortable for longer, ie all-day to multi-day stuff. Huge fan of WTB saddles here. But it’s personal, just worth trying one if you find the common and rightfully popular 1205 shape getting less comfy as the hours go by.Posted 4 years agobikebouyMember
Fizik Ariones for me, they are on all my bikes and I choose the middle strip colour to suit the bike 😆 For me they just fit well, I have a skinny arse and inner thighs and I’ve tried other brands (selle etc.) but the fit just doesn’t suit me. When I buy a new bike it’s the first thing I change, which means I have a few “other” brands sitting in the loft that I really ought to get rid of.. 😆Posted 4 years agoslackaliceMember
Have 2 bikes with the Gobi XM and delighted with it /them after trying many others over the years including SDG, Spesh BG, Flite’s, San Marco’s etc. I’m not particularly flexible, so according to the Fizik blurb, the Gobi would not be the best option for me, but it have found them comfy.
Saddles are a personal thing and ideally I’d like to find a try before I buy dealer.
Have just picked up a Charge Scoop for my next project build cos I wanted to try it and it’s offered with the colour highlights I wanted, so appealed to the tart in me, it was also affordable. Whether it fits my butt is another matter and won’t know that until the bike is built.Posted 4 years agoRusty SpannerSubscriber
A Spa Nidd – MTB/commuter with slicks.
SDG Falon (Spoonish, better padding, no stitching) – MTB.
San Marco Rolls – Road bike.
Mongoose own brand thing on the BMX.
And a few spare – a Bontrager & Specialized that came with new bikes over the years.Posted 4 years ago
A B17 Narrow, which is having a rest as I like the Rolls on the roadie at the mo.J273Member
Slr’s stripped to shell work for me .. Very easy cleaned and always look good
My arse agrees with SLR’s not sure how id get on with just the shell’s though. Do you not slide around?
Ive got a few SLR’s and the leathers ripped on all of them……I might strip one to the shell to give it a try.Posted 4 years ago
