|I'm looking to upgrade my BG Pro saddle to the new S-Works saddle...any opinions on the new(er) S-Works saddle(s)?
Second...I am currently using the '02 Bontraer Race-Lite wheels and am thinking of upgrading...any Clydesdale opinions of the Race-XLite wheels?

|Scott, I am of the opinion that guys your size (and I am not knocking you, I am a little bigger at more like 220) should not ride paired spoke wheels. If one spoke breaks, there is a lot of unsupported rim span that can fold. It's a nasty crash, I have seen it.
Look at the new Shimano wheels, they are going away from a paired spoke design, and Campy at least uses a 3 spoke pair for extra strength. I would tell you to get a set of wheels that have a uniform spoke pattern. get something like the Ksyriums or the Cane Creeks or something like that.
Just an opinion...
