    Saddle for Bicycle Desk Station

    I have setup one of my bikes in a trainer as a permanent bicycle desk station. I've had this bike for a decade and the seat has been fine. But now that I find myself upright with all of my weight over the seat instead of some of it distributed forward over the handlebars, it's not so comfortable anymore. Can anybody please recommend a comfortable saddle for spending time upright on a bike? TIA.

    Post Script: I've also had to mess around with the angle of the saddle because now the rear end has been lifted when mounted in the trainer. I didn't leave it as it looks in the attached picture.

    Brooks B17 or B67, or possibly a selle anatomica. I've seen them put on work stools for bench work. I think it will work better if you can have your feet comfortablly on the floor so you can shift your weight easily.

    pic from a quick google search. That saddle could be the B33, B135, or B190. City or heavy trekking series saddles.

    I don't know why,... it's just MUSS easier to pedal than the other ones.
