wider than wide
When I started bicycling a few years ago, I envisioned that a super-wide gel filled saddle would be the best choice in a bike seat. After seeing the slender hard seats that my son used on his bicycles, I just couldn't imagine one like that would ever be comfortable. Yet after I tried my narrow seat* for several days, I found it to be much more comfortable than I had ever expected. And now even on long rides (25+ miles), I find no problem with it.
Recently on vacation, I rode a cruiser bike that had a for several days with a wide saddle similar to the one in the photograph and it was never comfortable.
There must be a lesson about here, somewhere.
