Hi, the foam on my current saddle has totally failed and my arse is starting to hurt big time. Can someone recommend me a good comfy saddle that isn't overly expensive. ?

Saddles choice boils down to personal preference really, it depends a lot on the geometry of your arse and what someone else rates might not work for you. Your best bet is to try as many different saddles as possible, ie. on friend's bikes, so that you can get an idea of what shape you prefer.

If you're not using them already, maybe try a padded undershort too.

Can’t go wrong with a Charge spoon in my opinion, pick one up for less than £20. They are comfy although quite firm. Bel air SDG also worth a look, bit more padding but twice the price.

I bought a Charge spoon a couple of weeks a go and it's a million times better than the Nukeproof one that came with my bike.  Highly recommend it 👍

Ended up going for the Charge Spoon which was only £20 off of ebay. Only one ride in but it's noticeably comfier than my old one. Thanks for the suggestions 😀

It's crazy the price that charge have put on the Spoon, it just goes to show how overpriced some of the more exotic/well known brands are

Charge Spoon is good value. I had one for years but got a WTB Volt and prefer it now.
