    saddle suggestions for an epic?

    I have an '05 Epic comp, which I love. The specialized body geometry saddle has not proven too comfortable. Any suggestions? I am considering a Brooks b-17. Thanks

    I'm tried and used several brooks on my epic: swift, b17, b17narrow, team professional. Only the team professional worked for me (I'm still using it).
    So try different brooks (if possible).

    I have been using a Brooks Pro on a bike for many years.
    It's very comfortable after the break-in. The only negative is it's heavy.

    Recently got the WTB Laser V SLT and absolutely love it.
    Extremely comfortable. Like riding on a cushion. Light weight (235g).
    It's now my favorite saddle.

    It's hard to have someone else recommend you a saddle because it's seriously a preference thing, but I like the wtb rocket v stealth, and the selle italia slr gel flow.

    everybody is really different on getting a saddle to work , ----i use the 135mm wide little specialized Phenom saddle .

    i just love the dam thing .-----but my ass is really small and skinny and i really can not get paints to fit me and stay up, -----i really like the lycra xc type paints but my oldlady wont ride with me when i wear lycra ,

    and i am always catching my baggy paints on the seat and crashing when they slip down ------

    which i will say the 135mm Phenom saddle is the most forgiving for not catching my baggie pants and putting me on the ground
