Long Ride Evaluation of Sargent Seat
I just took the same 1500 mile trip that I took last year with the gel seat. This time I had a Sargent seat.
The trip included two 650 mile days on the slab. Here's my rating.
The Sargent seat is good for about 500 miles. Then you have to get off every hour for a while. Initially, for the first 300 miles or so, it is more comfortable than the extremely hard and flat gel seat. Then, the inability to move about on the seat like you can with the gel seat started to catch up.
So... Overall I give the Sargent seat a slightly higher rating than the gel seat, mostly because of its narrow front end that allows me to put both feet flat on the ground (30" inseam). I only ride more than 500 miles per day a few times a year. Maybe I'll change seats for those days.
