I have a WTB PureV Race SL saddle on my Niner. Call me crazy but the stitching on my saddle is starting to wear holes in my riding pants and shorts. I have never had this happen before with any other saddles. It appears the saddle has stitching exactly at the point where my pressure points are. Has this happened to anyone else? Can anyone recommend a saddle? It looks like the 2008 mtbr saddle of the year is the WTB Rocket V Stealth. Anyone have this saddle? If so, got some feedback?

Saddles are all personal preferenceas we all have different rear ends. I like the WTB Shadow saddles.

I agree. The saddle is comfortable… that is not the problem. The problem is the location of the stitching and that it is rubbing holes in my pants and shorts.

I've never heard anybody with that kind of problem or maybe they dont mention it and I've always heard good things about WTB saddles...

I've been using this one...not very comfortable but easy to shift around on & pretty darn light...

Jason,

My bike came with a Bontrager Race in white! Yuck! Stains and looks brown all the time! LOL..

I ordered a WTB Rocket V STR with Ti Rails. Nice light seat and from every Review I have read the seat is light and is VERY Comfortable! I am looking foward to it. Would be nice if it showed up Saturday.
