    Opposite for me...

    I've tried about 5 different saddles in the last 3 years and the Flite gelflow is the only one I like. So, maybe we're opposites and the ones I didn't like will work ofr you? I tried two from fizik - the long one (Arione?) and the lightweight one (forgot the name) - as well as the SLR gelflow and the fairly comfy but very heavy Prolink gelflow.

    You might try the Koobi Au Enduro - some do not care for it - I've had a great experience with it so far - came to it from the Prolink

    I tired a bunch of seats and am very impatient so this whole "ride it for a few 100 then let me know what you think" is bullshit. My Specialzed seat was ok, but 30+ it killed, did a 40 mile and had to hobble the next day. So I tried a few random seats, nothing fit well, LBS was pretty cool with it, finally ordered an Aliante. Bliss, I wanted the swing back shape, cups me very and I enjoy the heck out of it. I think it is the most expensive seat on the market however, but I really liked it. The reason for my previous comment, all the other seats were almost an immediate yuck. This one however, good from the second I sat on it. I think the big mis nomer is when someone suggest you just ride it out for a little while. I could tell the difference with first time on a road bike seat pain, and this seat sucks pain.
