    Cyclocross Saddles

    What are people using for both racing and general commuting?

    I use Selle Italia SLK in all my bikes, and a Brooks Conquest on the commuter.

    the SLK is great, nice flat area to sit on and an open cutout that acts a bit as suspension, it is not the lightest, oscilates between 200 -220 grms.

    The Brooks is heavy but great to ride on standard trousers with no padding.

    Pretty much whatever. Neither kind of riding has me on the bike long enough to care very much. I think both are actually Bontrager OEM saddles right now, which is a funny coincidence. Too wide a saddle would be a problem for me.

    Using the Charge Spoon currently and will be grabbing either a Charge Knife or another Spoon for the commuter. Love that saddle and can't be beat at $26.

    Selle San Marco Concor Light, because the color scheme matches. Right now I'm using the CX bike as a rainy day rig. I'll probably race with a classic Flite (ti tube).

    Specialized Phenom 130 with CroMo rails. Love it. Best saddle I've had. Most folks are shocked at how hard it feels to the touch. I was too until I rode it.

    The saddle moved from my mountain bike. As narrow as possible to fit between the legs on steep descents. Fizik Arione fits perfectly. Coincidentally it also fits for longer road rides.

    I have been using a fizik gobi saddle for a while now. This came off one of my mountain bikes. I like it because it is a little longer than many traditional road saddles giving be room to move around a bit. Also I'm sure it will stand up to the abuse of remounts and the punishment of trail riding.

    Selle Italia SLR. Been using for over a year although previous lightweight (and low budget) saddle didn't take kindly to my clumsy remounts...
