Have you ever had a spoon? It has the same amount of padding as an arione or aliante. I agree that a harder saddle feels a lot better (pause) but price doesn't reflect how much padding is on the saddle.
I was trying to say that the shape of the saddle and how your ass likes it affects your comfort much more than the "quality". The more expensive it is, the better it'll be made, but that doesn't garuntee you'll find it comfortable.
ok i agree, but from my experiences the more expensive saddle tends to be better in the long run, except for some stock giant seat i got for like 30 bucks, then i didnt ride very far though.
annnyways what kind of bike you riding?
