Saddles are funny things, and everyone's OEM saddle is
different, if you get my drift...IMHO, the Sprint has
the best stock saddle of any bike i have ever owned,
but it still isnt good enough, and nothing seems to
best it. I have tried the Triumph Gel, the Corbin, and
the Sargent, and havent liked any of them. I really
thought the Sargent was gonna be the answer. The only
one I didnt buy, I swapped Sprints with a friend for
one segment of a day ride, and couldnt wait to get
mine back...I have or have had Corbins on all my other
bikes, but everything you hear about their customer
service is true, especially of late.
Wish I could be mopre helpful...you might try some of
the custom things that Sargent can do on an individual
