I meant to post this here, not the component board. (I must be tired.) Picture this: A standardized rail system attached to a modular top, snap fit to custom butt orthotics layered underneath padding and leather. Foam fitting kits once mailed out to customers and returned facilitate the fabrication of the perfect saddle. For a slight upcharge I would be willing to hand fit saddles for those of the feminine persuasion. No more subjective debates about which saddle is the best with the ubiquitous Brooks lovers hogging up the forum. The brand name perhaps could be MY ASS SADDLES. So what do you think? I'm going to bed now.

*There could be another line called BIG ASS SADDLES

*For the hard core BAD ASS SADDLES

*For Freds DUMB ASS SADDLES

*For really heavy people LARD ASS SADDLES

*For people with attitudes KISS MY ASS SADDLES

Yup, I'd like to see this tried. What seems strange about saddles to me, though, is that what feels good for 10 miles likely will not feel good for 200 miles. What feels good down on the aerobars isn't necessarily the same as when sitting upright. They sort of have to be a compromise for what type of riding you do, too. Give it a go.
