I am looking at buying a new gel seat for my road bike. I am a heavier guy (200 lbs.) and need some cushion. I am looking at either the Selle Italia Prolink Gel Comp or the Selle Italia Flite Gel TI. Which one should I buy??? Do you have any other suggestions on seats to buy? HELP MY ASS HURTS!!!!!!!!!
whichever one feels more comfyrrjc5488

My LBS will put a saddle on their fit bike and let you try it out for a few minutes... try both of 'em.

I have tried the ProLink Gel, Flite Gel, Flite, SLR, Concor Lite, Rolls, and several others. I now have a Fizik Aliante Ti, and it is BY FAR the most comfortable saddle I have ever planted my butt on. I think I could sit on it all day without discomfort. It is soft and the shell flexes slightly to fit your body parts. It is not cheap, $145 for the Ti version, or ~$179 for the carbon rail version, but it is well worth the extra $$.

Do a search on this board for the Fizik Aliante. There have been several threads recently regarding them.
