      I purchased this seat to replace the very small and not well padded seat that came with the bike, so far this seat is a big improvement and it's much more enjoyable to ride now.

        The anatomical relief is a serious benefit. I wish the graphics were more subtle. You can see them in a satellite photo. It cheapens the overall look of the classic bikes I build. I use these saddles anyway for their price and comfort.

          I put this on my casual around-town bike to replace the hard one it came with. I took my first ride of the season and after 2 hours still felt fine and no major sore spots the next day either. A great choice.

            I have 240 miles on this seat including one Century. First time on was for 43 miles - adjustment wasn't quite right so a little work with an allen wrench and the seat was right. Sit bones hit the right points and the pelvic bone does not take any pressure. On the Century it remained comfortable and my bottom could have done another 50 miles. For my set up - as near level as possible works.

              I purchased this seat to be more comfortable while rebuilding my strength and stamina after a nasty spill. The seat solved my saddle sore bones and had just the right amount of padding without being too bulky. The seat is bigger than your normal saddle, but not so much as to hinder your ride. After my rehab stint I have yet to change back to my old seat cuz I like this one so much. Hope it will last a while...

              Very good saddle for the money

              Comments about Nashbar FC1 Saddle - Men's or Women's:

              Bought it for my hybrid bike on which the sitting style is more upright. The seat is quite comfortable but not overly soft with good support for the "sit bones". The middle cutout is just in the right place so you're not griding your crotch. The seat looks wide on the web's pictures but it's not in reality so it's good for male hips.

              The seat is comfortable enough so for short fitness rides (1 hour or so) you don't even need padded shorts.
              I'm actually considering getting one for my mountain bike as well. I've used it for only few rides so far, but it looks fairly duarable.

              The only negative is that the nose of the saddle is just a bit too wide for my taste. On longer rides this could be a potential chafe area.

              After one ride I could tell a difference

                    This is a review written after only one ride so take it with a grain of salt. It is meant to address comfort only.
                    I bought this saddle to replace the original that came with my bike. That saddle was a good high quality saddle, it just didn't have much padding and my pelvic region felt it after rides of 15-20+ miles.
                    I put this saddle on and decided to go out for a test ride. I hadn't ridden for approximately 3 weeks so I wasn't sure what to expect. I rode for about 25 miles / 1 hour 45 minutes. I can say that I could tell a marked difference in how my pelvic region felt at 15-20 mile range and thru to the end of my ride.
                    That said, the saddle is ever so slightly wider in the neck and I was starting to feel some discomfort to the inside of my thighs (thunder thigh syndrome) around 20+ miles.
                    At this time I feel confident the saddle is going to increase my level of comfort on 20+ mile rides.

                        This saddle gave me the cushioning I needed. When my last saddle of similar material wore out, I switched to the bike manufacturer's original hard, flat, narrow saddle as an interim solution until I could get the FC1. That former saddle just about broke my back!!! The FC1 proved true--my first ride on it for a 25 miler was a piece of cake--great comfort!

                          I was seriously surprised by this seat. When I got it, it had way more padding than I expected, and normally more padding is bad on saddles. I did not expect this to be comfortable at all. Amazingly enough, it is actually stiff enough, that the thick padding works well! I commute 5 days a week, 40 miles round each day. This seat actually works for this! And at the price point, it really can't be beat!

                          I've been riding for almost a year now and I knew that I needed a better seat. This seat did the job for me. I am riding 20-30 miles at a time and working my way up. This seat will help me succeed. I've had this seat for over 3 months on my Hybrid and about a month on my road bike. I just got the road bike and rode the bike with the originl seat until I ordered my new one.
