Saddle suggestions for MTB with child seat
 
I'm, in the process of converting my mountain bike into a kid-hauler. I've added a kid seat (a Yepp Maxi) and will be getting a kickstand and probably a basket soon. I went for a ride today, and noticed that my saddle, a WTB that's great for mountain biking, isn't so great when riding in street clothes.

Here's a picture of the bike, before I added the Yepp:

I love the Brooks B-17 on my touring bike, but it'd take forever to break in another one of those with the short rides I do with the baby.

Can anyone suggest some saddles that are comfortable in street clothes?

So why not just move it over?

Saddles that come on cruisers and town bikes are great for this, I bet every coop has a nice pile of them.

I ran 1.5" slicks on my MTB for ages for a commuter, they work great for this. Far smoother than knobs on pavement.

Because then the touring bike won't have a saddle.

Agreed about slicks, those are on the short list of upgrades.

lots of Pleather covered saddles.. sit on a few till your butt votes for one. ..

Vinyl wont bleed color out, like leather , so your Khakis should only pick up the dirt you dont wash off your saddle .

Selle SMP TRK. I've been on one for a year and a half, commuting daily in street clothes, with no issues.
