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

I bought this seat to upgrade from a big old gel seat. It fits much better and rides very well. The nose of the seat is a little long and I get poked sometimes with a rigid back tire. It has been great for rides so far but I normally only ride up to about 2 /12 hours at a shot. No real issues so far. Good seat for a good price if you are keeping it on a budget.

    Just what I needed - and at a decent price

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

      I was having "issues" with my existing saddle and need one with a cut-out. I tried Nashbar's FR1 but found the spots where my sit-bones sat was too small and firm for my 62 year-old keister. I contacted Nashbar and exchanged the FR1 for the FC1. Much better. The FC1 is comfortable and gives you a small amount of flexibility to move around on the saddle and still be comfortable. The cut-out took care of all "issues". So far I've done 10 rides averaging 13 miles a ride with a longest ride of 18.5 miles. I'm pleased with this saddle and looking forward to a metric half century in two weeks.

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

          Replaced original seat on Ilder Giant Sedona. A definite improvement. The cut out makes a big difference. Only had it out on one 11 mile ride. Still adjusting. A little sore but hopefully better when I get it tuned in. Seems to be made well and lighter than original seat but that's not a consideration for neighborhood rides.
          My Sella saddle is much more comfy on my road bike but the sitting geometry is different also.
          Good saddle for the price

            This is a very comfortable saddle and incredibly priced. Replaced a WTB saddle that I bought which was rated high for comfort that just simply wasn't. I've recommended it to several female friends.

              GREAT SADDLE. I WEIGH ABOUT 240LBS AND HAVE A BIG MUSCULAR REAR, THIS SADDLE WORKS GREAT FOR ME. THIS IS THE SECOND TIME I HAVE PURCHASED THIS SADDLE (FIRST ONE GOT STOLEN). ITS FIRM YET SOFT, AND NARROW ENOUGH TO RIDE PROPERLY. THE FIRST LASTED ABOUT A YEAR BEFORE BEING STOLEN AND NEVER LOST ITS COMFORT. HIGHLY RECOMMEND.

                  The saddle is good for moderate rides of an hour because it is well padded. Longer rides ask for a better formed saddle.

                    I've had issues finding a good seat. I'm a smaller guy, I don't know if that's why but this seat was comfortable right away. Since I haven't had it very long, I can't say anything about durability. The longest rides have only been about 25 miles. I'm pretty sure this saddle will be just fine on longer rides too. I put this saddle on my beater bike but I'm seriously thinking about buying another one for my road bike.
