|I'm in the market for a new saddle. Weight is an issue, but the saddle must be bearable for 50+ mile rides. Any opinions on the Aliante (other than it's bloody expensive)?|

|I haven't had a lot of chances to use it because my current bike is set up with an alien carbon seatpost and right now the clamp that comes with it won't accomodate the 9mm rails on the fizik aliante. I have written to USE and they are working on replacement clamps and say they should have them out soon. That is going to be great to have such a light weight and comfortable combo.
I have put the seat on my trainer bike and it feels very comfortable, even sitting on it with just regular shorts. The thing is incredibly light too.
