    Spec BG Rival saddle? My arse!

    Ever since I've had my 07 Stumpy, Specialized's BG Rival saddle is a real pain in my arse and is truly horrible. Barely 30 minutes into my ride, numbness kicks in and it is more comfortable to walk with the bike than ride on it.

    Who here hates the BG Rival saddle?

    Are they any other popular saddles out there anyone would recommend for both comfort and endurance?

    Before any smartarse posts, I'm not overweight and perfectly fit.

    maybe that's your problem. not enough padding back there.

    I had one also , hated it . Its padded well but somehow all your weight is sitting on all the wrong places . My boys were screeming after 30 mins . I picked up the spech TOUPE . It is lighter , thiner , less padded but 100% more comfy . My LBS owner talked me into it . At first I doubted him , " how can a thinner , flatter , lighter seat w/ less padding ever be more comfortable '' ? Did a wild 3 hour ride on day one w/ new seat , and bought the LBS guy lunch bc I was so happy . Plus if u hate it spech will allow a return it .
