    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.

    Seats, like many other things, come down to personal preference. How long have you been riding?

    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.

    If you've got a good mileage base, and a fair idea of what works for you, I would check the fit. Maybe something is a bit off somewhere.

    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.

    Welcome to the board from a former CTer. I grew up in New Milford, still miss it sometimes.
