Ive not ridden a bike for a few years now and want to start again, Im in need of a new seat for my old but hi spec bike. Whats around thats comfortable thats not going to cripple me for the first few rides? I do want something decent, so between £20-£50 would be the budget. Any suggestions?

I bought a Selle Italia Q-bik, and was pleasantly surprised. It's pretty comfortable even on long rides and I don't really notice that it's not as rounded as some other saddles. Only paid around £15 for it too.

I bought it just to have something to put on my red 503 until I could find an original Velo VL-109 saddle, but I plan on keeping it there now. I would not mind putting it on any of my other bikes either. I really like it.

Ive got an allay sport, the one with the pump up bag in the middle, seems comfy enough, but Ive just built another bike from a bargain on ebay and spares Ive had and want to use that, but as Ive not touched a bike for a year or so, I want something thats not going to cripple me as the allay is good, but will still be sore for the first few rides atleast.

Its a older Muddy Fox Rock N Roll Ultimate. Not sure if its retro, if not, not far off. Has some nice kit on it. Also have another Muddy Fox, Alu Comp (like my mid 90's foxes!) and a Giant Carbon MCM Team. The Rock N Roll was bought as a bit of fun for not alot, £63 of ebay, the owner didnt know what it was, Im sure these were over £1500 new!(Not the cheaper chromo ones and not the DH version) Its in reasonable condition, so was an absolute bargain! :D
