Seat options for a woman on a recreational bike?Eug

My GF's bike seat is torture. She's tried some of my old ones and they're not so good either. I'd let her try my Selle Italia Flite Gel and Selle Italia Octavia Gel, but she wants something with more of a cutout it seems, and something not so race-like. (She tried sitting on my bikes but didn't try actually riding the bike - too big and she's not a clipless pedal type.)

What are her best options (without breaking the bank)?

I added a suspension seatpost, but that helped only marginally.
try this one........african

interesting bike seat and it might work. I think they molded the seat on a womans privates and come up with this........

let us know if it works...

for recreational riders, particularly those that are slightly more upright (hybrids or road bikes with bars even with saddle). And they have a great return policy so no real risk. I don't think lending her a Flite or other men's road racing saddle is a solution at all.
