Hi,

after the kind of saddle you would put on your mums bike, but it is actually for me. I built up a pseudo-touring bike but it is the stiffest harshest thing in the world, normal saddles are killing me.

So after a comfy, maybe sprung saddle. Nothing too fancy. Not more than £15

Black or brown

Would this be suitable? Its very comfy.

3) Wilderness Trail Bikes Rocket saddle with comfort zone cut out and reinforced side. Very nice clean condition. No tears or scuffs. Little bit of rust to one bolt head, some marking to rails, cover lifting a bit on one side. £13 posted please.

@blacktopdisciple - Thanks for the offer, but I think it needs to be MORE squishy/bouncy, will keep it in mind though.


@dead rats - pics please

Thanks.

Will get some pics up soon, not near my saddle stash at the mo.

How come the bike's so harsh, is it alu?

Yup, alu, oversize and compact geo.

Also the shape of it puts all the weight towards rear wheel and pressure on the arse ... lol!

Here it is. 255mm long x almost 200mm wide, should be pretty comfy if the text on the underside is to be believed! £13.50 posted?
