This is my second Cite X saddle ... I use it on my commuter bike, just for around town. Would not recommend it for longer riding, but its great when you aren't wearing bike shorts and want a comfy ride. The only reason it isn't 5 starts is that my original saddle cracked after 4 years. Maybe that's the life expectancy, but I don't put all that many miles on my commuter bike.
I failed to realize that this was meant to be a more recreational upright riding style saddle, however my first ride was a 7 mile uphill mountain bike ride on a rough road and it was just fine. No soreness in evidence. Maybe eventually I will move it to my 3-speed Schwinn that I use for work, but it seems just fine.
A couple of things work for me. First, the angle of the seat after I attached it. Second, the less stress to my low back due to a correct curve while seated. I only ride 5 - 9 miles (short) and then about 20 miles (medium) when I can. This seat has helped me remain determined to finish my ride.
