        Comments about Nashbar FR1 Saddle:

        I'm mainly a road rider and have been riding with the local club for 25 years. Currently there are 7 uncomfortable saddles hanging on the wall. These days I usually only ride 30 to 50 miles but now, with the F-1 I plan to increase my mileage again. It's the most comfortable saddle I've ever ridden on and among the lightest. Time will tell how durable it is but it looks sturdy to me. I'd give it 4 1/2 stars if I could.

          Comments about Nashbar FR1 Saddle:

          Needed a seat to combat the numbness and support longer rides. Bought the first one for my steel frame commuter. Next one for my aluminum/carbon road bike. My recent was for a handy-me-down titanium. My one from harassed me for putting the Nashbar seat on the Guru, but I said it works great for me.

                Comments about Nashbar FR1 Saddle:

                I've had this saddle for several years and put 1,000s of miles on it. Feels good even on rides of 70+ miles without stopping. It has held up well. Saddle fit is a very individual thing so I can't say if it will work for you or not. What I can say at this price you are not taking too much of a chance to try it. I have tried a much more expensive saddle and it felt like a Hachett.

                Some companies offer a free exchange is you don't like a saddle. However, for me it was a hassle to keep sending them back and it got expensive with return shipping.

                  Comments about Nashbar FR1 Saddle:

                  I no longer think about my saddle. Previous saddle was like a torture rack, and I had to get off bike to stretch and allow blood flow to return to my saddle region. New saddle is great, and now the only time I have to get off is when I just can't make it up some hill. I have logged about 70 miles on it so far with no complaints. Recommended.

                    This the second I purchased. Put one on my MTB to replace factory one damaged in a crash. Very comfortable for up to 40 mile ride. My wife liked it and bought one for her road bike. Lightweight saddle. Great price and better when on sale. For the comfort and price can't see spending huge bucks for the name brands which can easily get torn up from a drop or a crash. Material was a little wrinkled but certain will smooth out with use.

                    Comments about Nashbar FR1 Saddle:

                    My stock racing seat was ok in terms of padding and use but I got horrible numbness with it, in the worst places. I tried this seat based on the reviews and price. The padding seems perfect to my fingers by doesn't seem to work well for me on the bike. The cut out resolved the numbness but for whatever reason it absolutely kills my sit bones. I have used it for several 80+ mile rides but I can't do more than 20 miles without having to get off for a while due to pain. The material is really grippy- so much so that sometimes it seems to make the chamois wrinkle. The other seats I have used allowed more sliding and motion on the seat, but I am not sure if that is what is making the seat so uncomfortable for me. I have used creams but I still get pressure spots and can't seem to find a way to make the seat work, so after a few months of use I am giving up. Saddles are a very individual choice that have to fit to your particular anatomy, and this one didn't agree with me.

                        I love this saddle. Along with my new Canari Grand Prix shorts. I got the sit bones for this saddle. It cradles and centers my seating position. I use to slump to one side my privates hanging to one side out. And when its time to go into the drops, the extra padding in the rear of the saddle is there for me to mash all day, up or across the great devide.

                          For me the saddle has been the most comfortable. I'm 5 feet tall and have tried and thought 134mm width was my fit for my sit bones. I tried this 130mm width and it feels much more comfortable "ON THE LONG ALL DAY RIDES"
                          The padding in the back is softer and I'm feeling better going into the drops position when it's time to cheat the wind or climb. I've ridden without padding and that's when the hurt after 25 miles happens and I feel like crying even embrocation crème could not save me from the sand paper chafe. With a padded gel bib or short no problems. "Bring On the Smiles n Miles! If you see other cyclist who are happy and smile Youlle begin to know why.
                          Thanks Nash bar for the great saddle. I wanna try the Nash saddle that someone commented feels like FIZIK Aliante/Ardea hybrid saddle.I saw a person at the bike shop getting a pro fitting on an FELT tri bike and I noticed ,like me they had the Nash FR1 saddle. I thought to my self, wow I'm doing something right on my 2012 Nashbar Famous maker SRAM Force Road bike.
