How in the world do you choose one? I may have asked before, but I don't remember if it was in here. Is it a personal butt feeling or is there a one size fits all saddle? And do you guess what would feel good? Is there protocol for this? My saddle is getting a tad more unbearable, and apparently it's not just me as I have read many reviews on my bike (Trek 5000 2007), and most changed out the saddle pretty quickly.

I am shopping for a new saddle myself right now. I think it really is a process of trial and error. Find a bike shop with a liberal return policy and start trying.<br><br>
Heather, I know Terry saddles work well for lots of women, but I am not one of them. The one you have in the picture, the Damselfly was probably one of the most painful saddles I have ever tried. That isn't to say it won't work for you however.<br><br>
Last season I thought I needed a new saddle, mine was ok, but got a bit painful on longer rides. So I asked a bunch of people which one they liked and started trying them out. None of them were any better than what I had and some were downright painful. Then somebody suggested tweaking the position of my current saddle, and what do you know, it made all the difference in the world.<br><br>
Unfortunately, that saddle is just worn out. The cover is cracking and it has definitely seen better days, so here I go starting all over again. I am thinking I may just end up buying the exact same one again, but I would like to give a few others a try first.<br><br>
Good luck with your hunt!
