    Any good deals on seats out there?

    WTB would be ok, but I'm open to suggestions.

    Not too plush, though.

    Thanks-

    This saddle is small but very comfy and light.

    WTB LASER V PROGEL SADDLE '05
    Plush performance is what this saddle is all about. Full performance spec, premium materials and dual-density Soft-Shell makes this the most popular saddle in the line. Great for road and mountain use.
    Titanium rails
    Soft shell w/Comfort Zone
    Plush padding with ProGel
    Leather & synthetic cover
    Abrasion resistant corners


    Price says $49.95, but they had it advertised in pg. 35 Mountain Biking magazine for $40, so use price smasher against their own ad and you will get it for $38

    $38 is not bad for a titanium rail, partial leather, pro-gel WTB seat.

    Thanks guys, but...

    ...I went by Performance last nite, and they had a WTB Speed V w/ ti rails marked down to $45. I took it to the counter and the clerk looked it up on the website and said, "These are marked down even more since we're in between sales. It's $29.99."

    Hoookayyyy.

    I took it and jammed.

    I already have the same model on my SS, and haven't had any pain issues. Course, I'm not sitting on it a whole lot.

    Where does it pain ya?

    Sierra Trading Post has two different Fizik Nisene saddles with ti rails on double clearance for $40 and $48 respectively:

    1. http://www.sierratradingpost.com/pro...in-Bike-Saddle

    2. http://www.sierratradingpost.com/pro...Mountain-Bikes

    Also if you use Google checkout, you get an extra $10 off. So, that's a $120 saddle for $30 plus shipping! The prices will go back up Nov 3.

    I'm a bit of a deal hound.

    Went to the website and the only saddle that they have online that 's close to what you got was the wtb speed v w/cromo rails and weighs 400g for $29.99. Can't find the ti rail version anywhere on their site. Please post a link if possible.

    I'm pretty sure he charged me for the wrong seat. That's why I took it and jammed.

    It's hard to say the way WTB has the seats packaged which model it is. I could have gotten one over on Performance, I may not have. I questioned him on the price and he seemed sure, so I ran with it.

    In other words, no linkee, sorry.

    I just picked one up and got them to price smash their own ad. Thanks for the info.

    Any Brooks. But probably a Team Pro (thicker leather). Ballpark $120. But if it gets too comfortable get a Brooks spanner, $10, and tighten the damn think up Last you a lifetime. Total cost of ownership over the next 50 years ? Less than $3/year vs. getting the latest and greatest every two years. Oh, and they weigh twice as much so they must be good
