    ready to pull the trigger on a terry tri gel saddle...thought welcome...

    bought first new road bike in about 25 yrs. i've had it about 6 mos and it's great but i'm hunting for a more comfortable saddle. replaced the crummy stock saddle w a san marco rolls. it seemed a close match to the turbo thats on my old bike.it's kind of less than comfortable. been getting saddle sores right down the center of my 'sit' area. also, gets a bit sore feeling after about 2 hrs. i figured that a saddle like the terry w a lge full cutout might be good. it's also known as a comfortable saddle. any thoughts? thanks

    Try the SMP Selle Strike Glider saddle. It's comfortable and will definitely eliminate your problem. Unfortunately it's expensive. SMP makes several saddle models with different widths and thicknesses of padding, if the Glider doesn't seem right for you.

    I have that seat on my MTB - love it. And yes, I'd probably throw it in the "comfort" category as well.

    I also have a Terry Tri-gel on my road-bike. And a Terry Fly on my hybrid. Love 'em! I forget I'm sitting on a saddle. And when I'm through riding, I have no pains or stiffness or anything. I think you'll like the Terry - let us know how it goes.

    I recently bought a Terry Fly (not sure about the exact model) and a Selle SMP Strike Plus. The Terry is not bad, but the SMP is by far the most comfortable saddle I have ever ridden and no numb parts. Liked it so much I just bought a second one even though I haven't been on it for any ride longer than 30 miles. Of course, everyone is different. I believe there is an online vendor that will let you demo various SMP saddles for a small fee.

    Terry fly is extremely comfortable and a good value too.
    With people like Peter P. around, I am done posting on this website. Mean people have driven me off after 9 plus years. Good luck newbies beware.
