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

    I'm building up a bike for my teen son's lady friend, and and the ride needs a seat. It would be rather gauche on my end to express excessive interest in the young lady's buttocks. However, I've got over 25 years of experience with Nashbar, and I know this to be a reliable part from a reliable brand. It doesn't cost a lot, doesn't weigh a ton,, it has nice fit and finish, and it could very well be the only saddle she'll need for years. It looks good, and I know people that have ridden them for years with no complaints.

    In my experience, Nashbar's house brand supplies rock-solid parts that are priced well below their value. They are a good step up from the OEM parts on many bikes in the $1000+ range, and tend to be thoughtfully designed.

    Until the young lady gets sponsored, it'll do.

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

    Meant to replace my Nashbar bought 2016 SE F@E stock seat. I liked graphics and design. I'm slightly out of shape body-wise 50 something 5'7 190lbs. I expected firmer gel infused seat. It had some flex over bumps (a good thing). Rode on it 5 or so times and found it not comfortable or supportive for me. I was comparing it to my Bonatrigger (Trek accessory brand) seat (gel based). Unfortunately not for me and returned it.

    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.

        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.

                  My wife loved the women's saddle. Her sisters tried it and I had to order 2 more. All three say it is very comfortable.

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