For some reason this saddle is comfortable right out of the box. I have had three over the past 9 years. I replaced more because they started looking very used. So far everyone has performed great. I ride around 3000 miles per year.Plus, I have not had to use a break in period like other saddles I have tried in the past. I am very happy with this saddle.
Good seat for the price seems to be a lot more comfortable than the racing saddle I had before if you're having prostate trouble you might want to look into this. Although it is not the best seat on the market for men with this particular problem it definitely helps.
I recently purchased a fat bike , I have another mountain bike that I have had since 1996 and it also has a Terry Liberator y saddle (leather) This saddle was the correct fit for my seat bones, I looked several places on the net and found Biketiresdirect could get me one at a reasonable cost. The saddle gives me support , This fat bike has no suspension so the seat is very important. I recommend this seat for all bike application , the best bang for you money.
