Selle SMP TRK SaddleThe TRK line is the basic model in the Strike Series. Made for those on a budget who still want the protections and comfort from what Selle has to offer Selle SMP's patented STRIKE saddle arises from extensive studies conducted which analyzed the different positions assumed by a cyclist in the various phases of a ride and the constant interaction between the body and saddle. The central channel of the saddle varies in width to contour the body and allow continuous circulation of blood flow. The design of the outer mid-section is shaped to follow your thigh muscles to maximize blood circulation and pedaling power.

What sort of cycling do you intend to do?
Will you just be riding on the road? Or will you be riding off-road? Or will you be doing a bit of both?
A road bike will be terrible off-road, and an off-road bike will be slow and difficult on the road. You could get 2 bikes, one for the road and one for off-road. Or, if you can manage with a compromise, hybrid bikes offer enough strength and versatility for off-road use, without hindering road use too much.
There has always been a big market for lightweight cycling parts and accessories, but you must also consider the strength and durability too. Off-road users will require strength more than lightness. Sacrificing strength for a lightweight product usually leads to regrets.
Road bike users can be a little more relaxed about then strength of their parts and accessories than off-road cyclists, just because the bikes aren't going to be as abused. However, it is still important to take the strength and quality into consideration. The lightest/cheapest item is unlikely to last very long under any conditions.
