Ladies Saddle
#1
Hi can anyone recommend a good ladies saddle for a 30 min road commute? There are so many to choose from it is a little confusing. Would like to spend less than £30 ideally.

Thanks

There is a nice lady on here I really can not remember her user name that does commute. Maybe she will see this post .
Good maintenance to your Bike, can make it like the wheels are, true and smooth!

I commute 1 hour, each way, to work on paved roads and have found that short of purchasing an expensive saddle, the VELO saddle that I have is the most comfortable. A ladies model should be available in your price range. It works well and doesn't look like something purchased for comfort only.

Yes to Velo , and if Terry saddles are available over the pond check them out too. They make men's and women's versions.
Stay away from seats with springs.
Never Give Up!!!

I have a Specialized Ruby with a women's saddle that is very comfortable. It looks like an instrument of torture, so I'm surprised at how much I like it. I've ridden for a couple of hours at a time and never had any soreness or numbness. And I'm no lightweight, either.

I just went out and looked at it, and I don't see any identifying marks on it except the Specialized logo. There's a number underneath that might be a clue: VL-2035. If that's not helpful, maybe check with Specialized. Maybe there's a list of components that would help. All I know for sure is that I like the saddle much more than I thought I would.
