    No experience with either saddle. I've been lucky in that the lightweight saddle that came with my newest bike is pretty comfy (as long as I wear padded baggies). Fit and comfort are personal and one lightweight seat might be comfortable for one rider, and it might feel like a 2X4 for someone else.

    If possible, try to find a shop that sells a few different saddles that would meet your needs, and hopefully they have a liberal return policy. Otherwise, you might just have to take your chances and if it doesn't work out, put it on ebay and take a loss.

    very personal choice indeed, and my personal favorite has been the WTB Shadow V.

    Lightweight, looks good, and the design is very comfortable because each side of the saddle can flex independently...
