I was told by a former co-worker (I was laid off in Dec) who races that its a saddle, not a seat. He was very adamant about it, and also an opinionated Dick - such as 29ers aren't real mtbs because the first mtbs had 26ers. They also didn't have suspension, disc brakes, etc..... Anyway, as I've been getting back into riding after years off I've been brushing up on the new stuff through this awesome site and magazines. I noticed that "saddle" is used, but that a seat post is not called a saddle post. I prefer "seat", I feel like a dork saying saddle. I know it doesn't really matter, but which one do you use?
