This review is from: Bell Memory Foam Saddle, Recline 800 (Sports)
I really like this seat a lot. I am a 5'8" woman, about 200 lb, and was looking for some support for the junk in the trunk b/c my the stock saddle on my schwinn aluminum comp basically felt like a piece of slender plywood between my legs. I can easily ride 15-20 miles and not experience any discomfort or soreness. With that said, there are days I ride about 5 miles for pleasure and others 15-20 miles for fitness. On longer rides I experience a bit of chafing that is prob due to my lack of "proper" cycling gear (sorry, not ready to break out the spandex) and also from the width of the wider saddle.
The ONLY negative thing about this seat (for me) is that it sucks up some serious vertical real estate on my seat post. I had to take off my reflector to adjust my seat without needing a step stool or running start to get on my bike. I plan to get a smaller, more narrow saddle to replace this one so I can make use of my seat post again, and maybe get something more appropriate for longer distances. If this if for pleasure riding, a cruiser, or commuter bike (less than 10 miles each way) then I highly recommend this seat.
P.S. It's about 19.99 at Academy

those jerks!! I ended up getting a more slender saddle after doing the longer rides. I forgot the brand now, it's been so long.
