Default Re: What about really comfortable cruiser seats?

All my bikes have Brooks, Ideale, or similar leather saddles. It's true about them being hard until broken in, but once they are, they're awesome.

I ride (pedal) just about every day, either a short trip to the liquor store, or a 50+ mile ride to the beach and back.

My butt never gets sore anymore, and no numbness in my, uh, nether regions.

The plain truth, is the more you ride, the less you hurt. Your butt gets used to it.

If you're a weekend cruiser, big gel seats are usually the way to go. There's many big, padded, springy, comfortable looking seats on new stock bikes, but one long ride and you'll know they weren't made with your comfort in mind. After a while, you can tell just by the look and feel of a seat that it's gonna hurt, without ever riding it.

I've had one of these on for a couple of years now and find it pretty comfortable. Nice vintage look to it as well. They also have brown.

One of these seats combined with a shock absorbing seatpost would be great. Too bad my riding position won't allow it.

Wow, that's a really nice seat, Chaz, thanks but I hear you spotted another candidate? Yes, I have, would you like to see it? Yes I would. Well here you go then.

I asked brown on our last ride how he liked that seat? His response was "just like sitting on the couch at home". I tried it out myself right before our last ride together and Mike is not kiddin. That is one very comfy seat!

Cloud 9 "comfort saddle" period!

That's coming from an ex-mtn. bike racer running Selle Italia Titanium "Flite Saddles" with just the carbon fiber shell, no padding.
