    need saddle suggestions

    for my commuter/roadie. saddle rails broke (wowie). Finished the ride, but need a throne. I'm not super picky, but I'd like some imput. Prefer to keep the saddle relatively light and <$30.

    gratzi,

    Sorry for the link to one online store - just an example. It seems to be carried just about everywhere.

    Most LBSs have buckets of saddles kickin' around that people have wanted to pull off new bikes (usually I guess to put on some huge 'comfy' saddle). Nothing fancy but light and cheap and sometimes just about perfect for the job. That's where I go anyway.
    Cheers, Dave

    Since most butts are so finicky about saddle choice, the take-off bin at you LBS is a great way to try out what`s available. If you should ever happen to find a ten people all happy with their saddles, chances are they will be on ten different models (well, OK- six or seven models). Unless you want specific info about a certain model, asking for saddle advice is almost completely pointless. You might also take a look at the "Saddles for Trade" thread in the clasified section of bikeforums.com
