Can anyone give me feedback on Serfas saddles? A LBS had a model with titanium rails and the quality looked good.
I've got a more basic one ...Humma Hah

... on my MTB, a nice, heavily padded, sprung seat for my aging rear.

I have found it comfortable and durable, but not terribly light. One thing didn't hold up: the cover succumbed to UV exposure fairly quickly (a similar saddle on the cruiser has proved much more durable with the same exposure). I put a $7 cover on it and continue to use it.

I used the Serfas RX last year on my long distance (100+ miles) rides. It's relatively cheap, has a hole, and I never had any of the various forms of saddle-related discomfort.
It's not a cruiser perch, but it's not as sleek as some prefer. But I had no chafing problems.
It has held up remarkably well.

Saddles as you probably already know are a difficult thing to recommend because everyone is different and how a saddle feels is different to each person.
That out of the way I have a Serfas Cosmos saddle, (I don't think it is still available) and is without a doubt the most comfortable saddle I have ever used. 130 miles in a day no problem.
I would definitley buy another Serfas, if I needed a new saddle.
But only you can tell if it fits you.
In fact I had bought so many saddle that I wasn't happy with that as I was purchasing the Surfas I asked if I could return it if I did not like it. I was surprised when they said I could return it with in 5 days.So dedinitely ask your LBS about a return policy.
Hope this helps.

I have been riding a Serfas RX for two years. For me, it has been comfortable and durable. I only do about 1000 miles per year.
