    That's a smooth looking ride. What the price tag on that though?

    Here's a pic of my 2009 Trek 1.2. Great bike and I love it riding it. This pic was taken right after purchase and I hadn't sized it yet, that's why the seat is so low in the pic. I also recently lowered the handlebars by removing the spacers and putting them on top.

    I rode a friend's Trek on a long distance ride and the stock saddle didn't mesh at all with my build. Is the stock saddle on your 1.2 working well for you?

    I looked at one at the LBS today. None of the bike shops near me ever seem to have what I'm looking for, but if I need an $8k road bike, they'll hook me up.

    Dean, I have a trek and have sat others. None of the saddles could I stand for more than 15 minutes. Thought I was going to be split in half. Crotch numbness is an issue with me. The trek design doesn't work for my butt either.

    Dean, No and in fact I can only stand 25 miles with bike shorts on before I have to get off and I'm sore for a few days. I haven't had the time with college, work and home responsibilities to research and replace the saddle. :(

    Oddly, the saddle on my Wabi Classic, which someone referred to rather derisively, is very comfortable. Minimal padding, but flexes just right.

    The human bum is so different among persons. I can't tolerate a narrow saddle at all. Unless I'm time trialing, I never wear padded riding shorts and have absolutely no problems with jeans or jean shorts. I do use a slightly wider saddle. Like you see on entry-level MTBs. Can ride any kind of pant or short on this type saddle for as long as I like.

    My biggest complaint isn't the narrow seat though. It's the Sora shifters. :hate:

    Shifters are over-rated.

    It's not because they're "Sora" but because the second shifter is up on the hood and I need to come out of the drops to shift.

    You don't need shifters.

    I don't need new shifters but I would like a set that I don't have to reach over to shift when in drops.
