    I am currently using my Trek with stock seat. It is ok but I have tried every adjustment I can think of, and got myself some padded shorts but still get pins and needles in places that they most definately shouldn’t be 😯

    The seat has been ripped after a couple of falls as-well so think it’s time to change.

    Any suggestions on a good seat that will bolt on easily. I have very little knowledge of seats other than sitting on them.

    Thanks

    always liked the look of the charge spoon in brown. No idea how they feel but look great. My advice is go to bikeradar.com and search their rxtensive reviews.

    You cant get those Charge Spoons are nowhere at the moment. I have been told by 3 websites there is a 6 week wait for them to come in 🙁

    Any ideas on something similar? I am going on a ride in Scotland at the end of the month and would like it before then.

    They’ve got about six of them hanging up at Bikescene in Guisborough (all colours too)

    Option 2 – WTB seats are generally good too

    I’d get SDG Bel Air. I’ve also got a Spoon.

    Nice one, I will pop over bike scene at the weekend. The SDG looks nice but a bit pricey for me

    Cheers

    Sorry, but I’m a fan of the old Brooks. Once broken in, always forgotten about a sore botty.

    thanks for the reply guys, like the look of the spoon, but have another question.

    Other than price, what is the dofference between the

    Charge Spoon Cromo rail at £22 (out of stock)

    and the

    Charge Spoon Ti synthetic at 35.99? (in stock)

    Thanks?
