I've had my Rush/City since May. In June I swapped out the stock saddle for a Brooks Cambium C19. Today, I put the stock seat back on. The Brooks is just too hard. I threw the dice and lost. The stock saddle has some gel or hard foam in it, and isn't so bad after all. Might there be something better for me out there? Maybe one day I will try something else, but today is not that day.
I did put on a Kinekt suspension seat post. That is a nice improvement in ride quality. You feel it working when you go over bumps.
So the only mods I've kept are the Kinekt seat post, and a Crane bell.
No issues at all with it. It is such a blast to ride!

I have a C19 on my cross bike as it takes the kind of abuse that gets dished out when riding cross, it has been great for that. The stock seat I find remarkably comfortable as most bikes have just a crappy seat as stock. You can probably sell that C19 no problem. I’ve been thinking about getting a thud buster to take the sting out of small bumps.

I put the Brooks saddle with rear springs on mine. The springs really work. I tested it by going over train tracks without standing on the peddles. It was a little bouncy, but comfortable and no shock waves.

It takes about 100 miles to soften the leather, even with lots of Proofride leather softener.

The saddle is the Brooks B-33 Saddle

Any other riders here change the seat? I am back to stock, but need something more comfy, with more gel or foam. The stock seat is ok, but not great.

Welp, I put the Ergon saddle on, and to me it is a definite upgrade. It is a bit wider than the stock unit, and the gel works well for me. I haven't had time to go on a long ride yet, but so far I give it a thumbs up.
