Need help with seat(6 posts)

Need help with seatavitar

I recently got a new bike, and am getting back into riding, mostly in Central Park NYC. The seat (Selle San Marco Era Comp) is killing my sit bones. I am willing to sacrifice weight for comfort.
How do you pick a new seat since you don;t really know till you ride on it. Can someone please make some suggestions for a comfy seat. Bike is a Mongoose Bosberg.

Whatever the seat that comes with the bianchi pista is THE most comfy seat I ever sat on. Call Bianchi and find out, it IS heavy. I'd tell you, but it just says Bianchi on it.

I changed my MTB seat from the useless one that came with the bike to a Terry (TFI Liberator - strange name !)Their website is They mainly produce women's bikes, saddles etc. but seems to have worked out the male anatomy ! This is a great seat; comforatble on shorter and longer rides. On my Roadbike, I am still using the standard Trek one that came with my Trek 1500. This works for me (tried on rides up to 100kms).

Glad to hear your riding again and having fun! I'm very interested in the Mongoose and would appreciate some information. Where did you purchase the Bosberg? What was the cost? Is it warranted?
Good Luck on the streets of NYC!

PS I ride the old Avenir pedals (upside down speedplays) and I think your knees will definitely appreciate the free-floating feel. Fine choice!

Terry has a money back guarantee (30 or 60 Days, I forget which). Comfy. Not a lightweight, you can save a couple of grams and buy the ti version.
