A good to great replacement for the original. Seemingly infinite adjustments for height&tilt. Secure and comfortable. Why bike mfrs. don't put this type of saddle on as original equipment I'll never know.
I have reviewed this saddle before since I have 3 of them installed on my bicycles now. So, since I have already reviewed, I'll just offer a little advice if you are trying this saddle. First, the saddle is hard and will remain hard, but not uncomfortable. As you ride it and break it in, it will become more comfortable even though it is somewhat hard. I learned from experience that the saddle must be adjusted to fit correctly or it can be very uncomfortable. That means you must fit the bike to your body properly, having the seat positioned at the correct position. You can learn how to achieve the correct fit by reading many online sources and watching videos that cover this. Or, you can have a bike shop fit your bike to your body. Once this is done you may need to adjust the tilt of the saddle so that your \"sit bones\" rest on the wider rear area of the saddle. When adjusted to the correct tilt, you will not have a tendency to slide forward (or backward) and will not feel extra pressure on your wrists from body weight. I had to try several tilt adjustments before I got it right, but when I hit the correct angle I knew it immediately.\n\nIf the saddle feels uncomfortable, try all of the above before you give up. I am very pleased with this saddle.\n\nNote: My full review is by matt6thirty3. I had to add an \"a\" because Walmart's review system does not allow me to sign in under my reviewer name - it insists on a new name with every review.
I bought a Mongoose XR-75 and found that the stock saddle was a little hard. I rode it that way for almost six months and then decided to get a different saddle. (I ride for about an hour every morning, around 4:30 am.)
I chose this particular saddle based on price and the fact that it was a gel saddle and it has not disappointed.
It was a direct replacement on my bike, no other parts were needed and it was installed easily, with no problems.
This seat is almost as hard as the stock seat but yet it is more comfortable. It provides a "smoother" ride and cushions the bumps quite a bit more than my stock saddle.
It seems to be very durable. (The more durable the saddle the more you tend to give up in comfort.)
It looks good on my bike and I couldn't beat the quality of this saddle at this price.
My mountain bike came with a very narrow, very hard seat. I'm a big guy, and needed a little more cushioning, and seat area.\nFor less than the price of most padded seat covers, I got this seat, and couldn't be happier with it.\nI commute @ 10 miles a day, and this has really helped in the sore butt area. It's quite a bit bigger, and heavier than the stock seat, but if you're not using the bike in extreme situations, I doubt you'll notice the difference much at all.\nI would highly recommend this.
I bought these grips for my 3 year old's tiny bike, although the thickness (the gel material) is probably intended for an adult (my son has no trouble with the size at all). I checked the diameter of his bike's handlebars with the diameter of adult handlebars to make sure they were the same, so I went ahead and ordered these because finding decent replacement grips locally was difficult- overpriced and almost no selection at all. Item arrived at my local Walmart a day earlier than estimated, and only took a minute or two for guy at counter to retrieve them for me. I had read one comment said these grips were too hard to install, but I did not find that to be the case. The instructions says to put a little water on the handlebars to help slide them on, which is probably key. The water will evaporate and leave them on really tight. Even with water, you do have to grip hard and push at the end to get them on, but I can't say it was a problem. I'd rather they stay on well. Seems to be a great product, and at a great price from Walmart. Far better and cheaper than anything I found locally.
I bought these because they look like the knobby 3 1\/2\" grips I have on my Giant MTB. After I put them on my custom rat rod bicycle (Huffy Cranbrook midnight blue) and rode around for a while... I love them! They look great, they feel great, and they seem very durable. I plan on buying more!
NOT SUITABLE for Very Large Seats on Exercise Bike
Don't be fooled by the review that suggested this seat cover would be suitable for very large seats on an exercise bike. I read that previous review and decided to buy this seat cover. I was very disappointed. My exercise bike seat measured 13" front to back and 13" side to side. This seat cover is nominally 4"x10"x6" and doesn't come anywhere near being able to fit on the seat of my exercise bike. In fact, it wouldn't cover even half the seat. Furthermore, even if it covered the seat, the padding on the seat cover appeared insufficient, and I didn't like the quality of the material for the underside of the seat cover. In short, this seat cover will NOT fit very large seats on exercise bikes, as I described, and the amount of padding is insufficient.
