any feedback on the selle trans am and the selle trans am max would be greatly appreciated. Trying to decide which one to buy. I ride for fun and fitness. I also enjoy a lot of long rides 4-6 hours on the bike. This model has been recommended by a person who rides 6 days a week as a bike courier.

you want a super heavy saddle that requires special care and looks weird on a modern road bike. Hey, Rusty if the guy wanted advice on the Brooks he would have asked for it. Quit spewing these thinly veiled advertisements.

...you want to be comfortable forever. But if you want to stick a plastic piece of junk on your bike, feel free.

personally, I don't care for brooks saddles, but I also don't care for SDG, WTB, or any of the Selle saddles.. there's a lot of things I don't care for. what brings me to post on this thread is the annoyance of having to read yet another one of rusty's adds for brooks. I understand that you love their saddles and I wouldn't try to convince you that you shouldn't, they are a finely crafted thing. Unfortunately, they are not for everyone and if someone asks for information on one or two non-brooks saddles, then your advertisement is surely more annoying to that person than helpful. there may be some people out there that don't know about brooks yet, but if they are in the market for that type of saddle, they will surely find it on their own. well, that's my rant, flame away!
Tried Trans am....Len J

in both the flite & prolink versions. Flite was too hard for my butt. Prolink was just right. I understand that Max trans am is wider than the other two & softer. I didn't need wider, and didn't want softer until I eliminated the others. It's so personal that you need to try both.

Good luck
