TRIGUY! SCOTT! You, yeah... you!
I'm of above average size- ok, I'm "husky", "big boned", "chunky", "fat".. pick your adjective. A few years ago, I decided I was going to buy a bike, get svelte and start commuting by bike. So, I found a deal on a Scott Sub 20
Let's just say- the seat that came with it was a little too "happy" for me and even a 10 minute ride left me sore for 3 days.
I tried a time or two and it was just unbearable.
So, pretending it was a horse- I went out and bought a new "saddle". This one is vented in the middle and a little more cushy but still "streamlined" (because hey- this is a serious bike! It needs a serious saddle). I'm trying to find a link to it- but it was about $40 or $50. (It's not this one- but kind of like this
I still don't ride much, but Wednesday + Thursday here at the campground I rode a little bit (maybe 10-15 minutes Weds and 30 minutes in the morning and then short 5-10 minute rides the 2 or 3 times in the rest of the day). It's not bad, but I'm definitely a little tender when I sit on the bike and it got worse with each ride. And, I'm not sure how things are going to feel when I go for rides today...
SO- I'd like to try and replace the seat again. But, I don't have any idea what I'm supposed to look for. I even don't mind spending a little bit of money ($100-$125 likely is my limit).
