I finally found a saddle I love, then they stop making it. It's the Serfas ARC Dual Density Ti. This is the first saddle where I can ride all day and not notice it. Has anyone else used this saddle and found a different one they like as well? The others I've ridden for a period of time are a Concor Light and a Turbo. I didn't like either of them.

Take some measurements of your Serfas, namely at the widest point on the rear and about 3-5 cm back from the nose. Also note its profile, whether it is flat across the top longitudinally, or has a saddle (concave) shape. Then go to a well-stocked LBS and try to find a saddle which matches well. Or better yet, take your Serfas off and take it with you. There really is no better way, as every person's anatomy and preference varies.
WOW same boat here!! and I found something I likenestorl

I used to ride the serfas until it died after a crash... then had no luck finding it. I went for the selle italia pro link. I love it just as much although it is a bit heavier. Give it a try. :-). nestor

Is this a road-specific saddle? I just bought the MTB version (women's model) of the Dual Density Pro, Ti rail, for my road bike, and it is fantastic. Have a look, as I'm quite sure they're making a men's model, as well.
