Any input which one is best to go for? Looking to replace the one that came on my Trek 1.5 as stock, but cant afford to spend much more, as already sank over £1k on bike and equip this month!

Cheers guys

    It's impossible to say!

    Saddles are such a personal thing...

    Well, from my days of MTB I know these are the two main brands of saddle, just can decide between them both!

    As said on a prior thread I get a bit of prostate pain after long cycles, so looking to improve this.

    You may not get on with either saddle. Two types of saddle? There's a few more than that.

    An impossible one to answer.

    I went down the Specialized BG saddle route with the hole in the middle on my last three bikes, thinking they must be the best because of the teccy hole.

    I then bought a Felt AR4. It came with a Felt branded saddle so I don't know who makes it for them and it has no hole. The thing is it beats the other saddles hands down.

    Its more comfortable and forgiving even though it is just as hard as the others.

    So to sum up, Its very much a case of you gotta try them for yourself.

    As Lucretious once said, One mans meat is another mans poison. (I knew my private education would come in use one day) :D
