comment Saddle for long rail trails, streets and dirt paths
Thanks these seem quite helpful. While common sense would lead one to believe when you sit more (long rides) would want more padding/gel, since everywhere I read and these comments seem to suggest the gel fails in comparison to leather. While my bike was a little shy of 700, which I consider a lot I know that's not much compared to high end bikes so at first I thought leather would be overkill but sounds like a Brooks Trekking/Touring if I can find one on Amazon may be the way to go. Thanks for your help!

Thanks for all the suggestions in regards to things to increase saddle comfort such as lotions and short types, but for this post at least I'm interested in saddles, or types of saddles that would be best for my riding styling.

Thanks, but as mentioned, "I have no "hair" back there" neither small nor big. So like I said thanks for your interesting comments but they do not apply.

@DanielRHicks I had returns between each paragraph but when I clicked post it combined it all into one. To note I have no "hair" back there. I'm sure the more I ride the it will slightly improve, however since there are so many saddles that offer a multitude of "comfort" levels I assume that's for a reason. But thanks for both your interesting comments none the less.
