    selecting a new saddle

    I've been riding about two years now, and finally bought a bike. I find the fizik tundra 2 that came on my bike very uncomfortable. And suggestions of different saddle options to look at?

    First thing- go to a Specialized dealer and get your sit bones measured. Saddles come in widths now a days and getting one that doesn't fit will just continue to be uncomfortable. Once you know your size, then you can start looking for a saddle.

    x 2. Your local Specialized dealer will be able to fix you right up.
    The pedals turn, not just the left one, but the right one too.

    You've been riding two years. Presumably that saddle agrees with you. Get another one for the new bike.
