New to this site. I just got a Trek Top Fuel 8, 19.5 frame, used. Couldn't pass on the price. Had it out a few times, and love it. Not to crazy about the seat comfort. Any suggestions on a more comfortable seat.

welcome to the forum.
as for seats ride on a few and then decide. i like selle flite but they just work for me. wtb has a test ride program... you can ride them and then by one if you like it my local shop will let you ride it for a couple days or so.

Body's Getting Older, Mind Getting Younger

I've been trail riding since I was 15. Really into it in 20's and 30's. Now at 46 I get out on the trails a couple times a week. Always perferred the narrow saddle. The wider, more cushioned ones bother me after about an hour or so. Good to ride to Dunkin Donuts, bad on the mountain.
Have a narrow now, but get numbing afer awhile. Maybe its just the fact that my body's getting older, and my mind is getting younger.

Look at Specialized seats. You can choose your seat width based on your anatomy. I always road on too narrow a seat and getting one a little wider (143 mm) made all the difference.

Try this link to their web site.
