The Trek series 1.2[/IMG]
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.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?
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.I rode a friend's Trek on a long distance ride and the stock saddle didn't mesh at all with my build.

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