Saddles are so much personal preference its hard to decide a best.

I like ergon saddles a lot but they’ve been very hard to get recently.

Not a fan of specialized saddles though, would try the power but been taking off the stock bridge saddles from all my specialized bikes.

I found a Paul tensioner in my parts bin and converted my titanium hardtail into a single speed. It’s lighter now.

Bye bye old Transition TransAm single speed it served me well. Will make a college commuter bike for my daughter.

That’s awesome, make sure you get her a great lock!

I am old and fat so I went with 21t Kick Ass Cog rear and 32t elliptic front. I know. But local hills kinda steep. At least it ain’t a moped.

Currently on Ergon and SQ Lab. Both nice. Always had happy cheeks on WTB also.

I quite like my Chromag Saddle.

WTB in the dirt... Fizik in the road.

Do not like Power saddles at all but was impressed with the Romin, been trying to find a Romin Evo Mirror for a couple months without luck.

I really like my Specialized Power Arc and Phenom saddles, annoyed the Power Arc doesn't come in Comp level so you need to shell out for Expert. Would be keen to try a Mimic saddle and also curious about Ergon and SQ Lab.

Underrated saddle is my Giant Contact Neutral - cheap and comfy. Had a Fizik for quite a while that I liked. Didn't love my Chromags or WTB, and hated Tioga.

I would like to suggest Fizic for the worst

Currently rocking a fabric scoop, wtb volt and chromag trailmaster.

The wtb volt agrees with my butt the most

SDG for lyfe my brothas and sistas



Fizik saddles are equivalent to bolting a hatchet to my seat rails and riding on top of railroad ties. Ruff.

Historically I've gotten on well with Ergon & bontrager saddles. Decided to try an SDG BA3 recently. I've got nothing but praise for that saddle, I'm finding myself much less sore in the days following a ride then I have previously.

Have you tried any of the newer models?

Scott/Syncros Belcarra and Tofino are massively slept on.

I ride Fizik for decades and my behind is intact. Toughen up.

Short friend is trying to buy a bike. They always have issues with saddles buzzing on small /extra small 29ers. Any recommendations for bikes you know don't have clearance issues with saddle buzzing at full bottom out? Or, if you'd prefer to throw a bike brand under the bus, this seems like a good place.
