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

The seat is comfortable but I believe would be even better with a deeper and wider seat groove. A slightly softer gel padding would also be nice.

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

    Surprisingly good; much better than what might be expected from a store brand. It is at least as comfortable as that other make it so closely resembles. That one starts cracking apart almost immediately, so if this one lasts, it's definitely the better choice. Padding is soft, but firm enough, too. Very satisfied, so far.

        I bought this saddle for my wife's bike that I am referbishing an old early 80's womens road for her. In the process of teaching my wife how to ride I have been on it some as well. I love this seat it is really comfortable. and is well adjusted for long rides even though she's not quite ready for those yet. It will come. While teaching her I didn't want to spend a ton of money on something she may hate but this was a great saddle and a great price. She likes the way the saddle is better than those monster saddles that some have on their bikes.

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

          For years I've had a love-hate relationship with The Brooks B-17 that I installed on my sport-touring bike. No matter what adjustments I made it was never right and, sometimes, just plain painful. I finally followed an on-line suggestion and soaked the leather saddle in neatsfoot oil which ruined the leather saddle completely. Rather than spend the money for a new Brooks, I gave the FC1 a try. After a couple of trial and error adjustments I've found that this inexpensive saddle is, for my butt, way more comfortable than the B-17 ever was. It's good to ride 30 miles or so and be able to enjoy the ride without significant discomfort. Probably no saddle is perfect but the FC1 is more than adaquate and a great value.

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

          I was having some knee issues and thought that having a larger seat platform might help. This saddle is O.K., but not nearly as comfortable as the FR1 I have on my lighter weekend bike. I don't like the mushy feel and the chafing. I've ordered an FR1 and as soon as it comes I'll be sending this one back. BTW, the with the FR1 I have no knee isues.

            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.

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

              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.
