    Im assuming you meant fizik. word of caution: The fizik is a nice saddle to be sure but it is narrow. I bought one and after one ride its in back in storage. I put my wtb laser back on and have been happy since,

    I have Terry Fly Ti on my HT which is great and more old school and WTB Rocket (or laser V) Ti on my Yeti which is comfy too. I think you may like the Terry better and they go on sales at performance frome time to time.

    comfy perch

    Hi,
    I've had dozens of saddles and I have to say the Fizik Gobi is the best I have ever used.

    I had a Fizik (not a Gobi) on my original build kit and did not take it since it did not have the love channel which in my experience is a great feature.

    Yes, I've had a few Fizik saddles and not liked most of them.
    I know there is no 'love channel' but the way the Gobi supports your ass it doesn't seem to be an issue.
    The Gobi also got a 10/10 in a recent MBUK saddle test [I had mine first so was not swayed by the test into buying one.
    Saddles are very personal so I guess it is a case of trial and error until one fits.
    The Gobi reminds me of an old WTB SST 98 but better - it also looks really good on the bike.
