After some trouble finding the right saddle, (including Fizik Donnas, various other saddles), she settled on a Selle Italia Diva Flow. It’s now on all her bikes, and she won’t be without it.
She also tried the Power on the turbo, felt that pro and sworks were too solid, but was happy enough with the expert padding level.
I need to replace the saddle on my commuter and just discovered that Specialized have discontinued the Jett :-( the lithia looks a bit too padded. Any recommended alternatives?
Interesting article on sitting problems:
My wife is looking for a new saddle for a mountain bike.
She is new to mountain biking so not sure where to start with saddle choice.
The saddle that came with the bike has a cut-out with quite pronounced ridges which she finds very uncomfortable.
She has quite an upright position on this bike also.
thanks for any advice.
Is she in London? Can she get to the London Bike Kitchen to sample the Saddle Library? It's very hard to recommend saddles as it is so personal.
No we're not in London.
I know. It's difficult as her only other bike is a very upright town bike with a big sprung Brooks saddle.
The saddle on the MTB she doesn't like anything about it.
