I've been riding with a Terry Liberator X for 17 years and will keep doing so as long as they keep manufacturing them! I have one on each of my two bikes; due to wear and tear I replace maybe once a decade. I agree with the reviewer who advises you to know the width between your sit-bones. They mention using a tool carried by Trek dealers; you can also do this by lying on your back and bringing your knees to your chest. Feel for your sit bones and use a measuring tape to measure the distance between them. You want the widest part of your saddle to be wide enough for your sitbones to actually rest on-- otherwise you'll be resting your weight on soft tissue! Ouch! The 6.5" width of the Liberator is the right distance for me; many saddles are significantly narrower than this. May you find the right saddle for you, and have many happy miles!

Good so far

I've ridden about 375 miles on this seat over the past 5 weeks. Longest ride was about 30 miles. So far I love it. My previous seat had a small rip and I wanted to replace it before it turned into a big rip. The Terry seat seems almost identical to the old one but is a little bit firmer. This hasn't been an issue at all and I don't anticipate it will become one. Very pleased with the Terry so far, and glad I splurged a bit for it.

I am a petite 5' 1" woman, 115 pounds with very little rear "padding". I ride longer distances, usually 40-50 miles per week, several times per week. I found this saddle to be comfortable for the first 15 miles or so, but then experience chafing on the upper leg/seat area. I use padded cycle shorts, chamois cream, and have a professionally fitted road bike, so I'm not sure what my problem is with this seat. However, for shorter distance riding, this seat is comfortable.

Width matters...know yours

Being a female with narrow sit-bones, this saddle was a bit too wide and resulted in a sharp pain on the inner/rear thigh where the leg and saddle met. I recommend measuring the width of your sit-bones prior to purchasing any saddle...it makes a HUGE difference! I work at a Trek dealer in Pullman, WA where we have a similar measuring tool for their Inform line of saddles. I recommend contacting your local Trek dealer to see if they have one too. I'm not aware if other companies have this same type of tool. It is worth the visit to get your measurements. On another note...I rode this saddle for a couple of years and it really has held up well. The cut-out does help relieve pressure points on soft tissue...just wish it was narrower for me.
