Saddles
#1
So, having spent a decent few miles on the Boardman Team Carbon, I am now convinced that it's simlpy not possible to get comfy on it's saddle. This is initially surprising as it's the same as on the MTB but the overall geometry is of course somwhat different.
The upshot is that I need to get a new saddle for the roadie. Any recommendations from other roadies or closet roadies on here? Must be very good value for money... not necessarily cheap as I don't want something nasty that'll fall apart, but it needs to be cost effective!

The Rulebook of Cycling states that the first reply to such a question should be Charge Spoo. I got one for the gfs hardtail. Looks nice...20 quid...supposedly very comfortable.
The rulebook states that the 2nd suggestion should be that Saddle that Treehugger uses...i forget the name.

Not very roadie-like though the Charge Spoon (ive had 2 of them).

Ive no idea... whatever is lightest and the most carbon.

My research led me to many a roadie thread on BR, and it cropped up a lot as being on road bikes. And lets be honest, saddle comfort is pretty important.

Indeed - cant go wrong with a Spoon - price is also very excellent.

& available in four different colours and with ti or cromo rails.

That said Merlin did have the ti railed version of Treehuggers saddle for about 32 quid. It also gets highly recommended.

Spoon is the right shape, others are similar and some lighter. Like a bit of gel in there... Kraken one is has some gel content and I can ride that for hours. Boarman one is too wide in the middle... fine on the MTB.
