|I don't think there is a more personal component on a bicycle than the saddle. What feels comfy to one person will seem like a picket fence to the next. Lots of old timers swear by Brooks saddles. One reason there are so many saddles today is that lots of other old timers positively hated Brooks. Same is true of every other saddle.
I doubt anything will affect your enjoyment, or lack of enjoyment, of your bicycle more than the saddle, so it's worth a few tries to get it right. If you like your Nytro, fine. If you don't, pitch it and try a different saddle. It doesn't matter what anyone else thinks. When you eventually find the saddle that agrees with your own personal posterior, buy two more just like it to use when the original gives out.

|agree with everything but buying more... unless you beat the hell out of your equipment, or crash alot and rip it to shreds, a good saddle will last a long time. and the big assumption being made- and often wrong- is that your body remains the same over a very extended period of time|| |
