    I need to replace the saddle on my Kestrel 200 sci - what are some good saddles to consider? I'm 175 lbs and do mostly road races and time trials. Does the "anatomical" cutout really protect the "boys" or is it just a gimmick? Does riding style dictate choice? Is light & comfortable really possible? Or does it all boil down to what looks cool? I don't want to spend more than $70-80.

    Hi,
    Sheldon Brown is a bicycling guru; pay careful attention to what he thinks. The Brooks saddles cam be amazingly comfy; if they suit you. I like the B17, my impression is that they are great for recreational riding. For racing Brooks makes narrower saddles; but people don't seem to feel the same way about those. In any case, if you're not bent way over; it's hard for me to imagine a better saddle.

    My advise...

    To each [Butt], his own [Saddle]...

    I hope for the near future that they never stop making the Avocett Air o2 saddle!!!!

    For my wife it is the Fisik Vieiteese...
