Charge Spoon. I have one on my wet day bike. Very good for the price and comfy.

Here is a review.

I also have Charge Knife on my dry day bike. Slightly less comfy than Spoon but decent and light.

Looks like a charge spoon

Firstly, congrats on the ride! Keep it up!

I have the same bike (color and everything) so I can offer a few tips for the new(ish) rider with this rig. Treat it well and you will be happy with it for a long time. I have over 1200 miles on this bike.

First, as everyone has said, foot retention. I have the Pure Fix straps from amazon. If you can swing it I suggest upgrading the pedals as well when you buy retention. I have a nice slim platform from fyxation. About $25 but you can get something better than what is on that bike starting around $12 on up.

2nd, Seat. Keep doing 40+ mile rides and you will quickly realize the stock seat has to go. I have a charge spoon I paid around $26 for. Non-bike friends tell me how uncomfortable my seat looks and I tell them that you should see the original seat that came with the bike! I love the charge.

You see the black streaks from your brake pads on your wheels? Eventually that will cause a streaking noise that is horribly embarrassing if anyone is within a one hundred yard radius. It will also stop like shit. I taped off the rim and sanded the paint off of that edge, then replaced the pads with a really nice pad/shoe from amazon for about $10 a set. No noise, no black marks on the rim and nice braking.

Tires. Keep an eye out for a nicer set of tires. The stock ones will get the job done for a while but they are cheap. Keep an eye out on steepandcheap.com or theclymb.com or wherever. I picked up a set of Vittoria slicks online somewhere for around $16 each and it was a world of difference.

I did replace the brake levers but I broke one of the stock ones. The stock levers are cheap but no rush to replace them if you dont need to. Again, there are a ton of better options out there starting at around $15 when you are ready to upgrade.

I also replaced the bar tape but it was mostly because I was not happy with my install. The stock tape is fine.

I hope this helps a bit. I just wanted to show cheap bikes like this can get a lot of flack round these parts but a few reasonably priced upgrades can make this a nice bike that lasts you a long time.

Here is a few shots of mine. Disregard the blue bottle cage, its on there from a 50 miler i did a few weeks ago. my bike

i have heard good things about the charge spoon , though i've never ridden one.

Installation requires a metric hex wrench -- either a 4 or a 5, usually.

Most saddles will be compatible with most seat posts -- the diameter matters for the frame, but almost all saddles are two-rail designs that attach to any normal seatpost.

Make sure you put some grease on the part of the seat post that lives inside the frame -- stuck seatposts are common and incredibly annoying to fix.

Charge Spoon

It has been super comfortable so far

I have a collection of WTB saddles. Not a fan of them but they tend to come stock on bikes. Love my Specialized Phenom and Fabric Scoop Shallow. Not much padding but they both flex and I find them extremely comfortable. I’ve read good things about these Charge Spoons and they’re inexpensive

I hear good things about these saddles.

u/jgabrielsson · 1 pointr/FixedGearBicycle

i got a cheap bike mostly for the aesthetics of it ( https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/736x/65/16/38/6516385675b4139a2dd0797e36e177c8.jpg ) that i just started riding fixed, and i really like it so far. But i somehow think an upgrade would do me good. What would be your #1 priorities to change on the bike? Im ordering a new saddle next week http://www.amazon.com/Charge-Spoon-Saddle-Brown-Cromo/dp/B00GJPJ8NU and also some straps. Other then that, what would YOU buy/change and why?
