I have an old Schwinn World frame that was given to me for free and I bought this seat mainly for price and looks. I am impressed on all fronts. This seat was easy to install and is pretty comfortable for most around the neighborhood and local road rides. I might choose a different seast for long rides but this aint bad at all. Couldn't beat the price either. Thanks Jenson USA for having a wide range of affordable parts available for my project.

I bought this a year ago and I am fairly unsatisfied with it. While riding with it I feel too much pressure in my perineum (I'm a guy). It's not so bad that it is painful, but it is definitely not as comfortable as my previous seat was. I came back to jenson to find a new saddle with a hole in the center with the hopes that that will fix my problem.

Don't get this if you are afraid of having the same problem. If you don't think that is an issue for you, then go for it. The cushioning is fine for a road bike and it looks good. At this price it's not a big deal to take a gamble on it.

Comments about Retrospec Saddle:

Put this seat on an old dirt jumper just for the look and it looks great. The only downside is that it is pretty uncomfortable but i don't sit much when riding my dirt jumper so it isn't all that bad.

    Comments about Retrospec Saddle:

    This is a very flat saddle, for those who prefer that style. It's confortable enough for short trips, but I never took it out for any great distance or time. The surface material isn't too sticky, not too slick. Nice seat for the price.

    I bought these saddles to use on a fleet of bikes I have to teach kids to mountain bike. They were very inexpensive, pretty cool looking, but very hard and uncomfortable. Definitely worth the price.

        Bought this saddle to throw on my son's MTN bike as he is constantly tearing saddles up. Decided that I would try it out first on my CX bike and as it turns out it is a solid saddle. Stiff enough for the road portions and soft enough for the trails. I was so impressed I left it on my CX bike and found another saddle to throw on the boy bike.
