    Noseless saddle, any experience?

    I am 190 LB, i ride city bicycle in upright position and refer saddle where i actually sit softly, opposed to hang on it with my bones.


    Extra wide or nose-less saddle is what i need, anyone has personal experience with those can recommend a good one?

    So far my options are, if you have first hand experience with any of those please share.

    Here's interesting article about the nose-less saddles, every time i'd see this saddle in the past i would think same - they made for fat people who dont fit on regular saddle or some old sick people etc.

    One thing I have read about nose less is that they are harder keep stable, you actually use the nose a lot to balance the bike.

    Used to ride without hands before now days i lost that skill completely, for city cruising this should be no issue.

    Yep. I did a tune-up on my wife's aunt's bike. She's got one of those sofa-like noseless saddles on a Walmart bike that weighs approximately 3,500 lbs. I had a helluva hard time riding the bike around the yard...I nearly fell between the top tube and the handlebars when I tried to turn.
    I lost my phone number. Can I have yours?

    A customer of mine just removed his because it caused a crash. I didn't understand the details but something about losing balance or slipping off the front of it.

    No snapped frame but his stoker (it was on a tandem) wasn't very happy with him and made him remove the saddle.
