a new saddle. I decided not to have a pro-fit done like I had been talking about because things started to feel better. My ride in Tucson the other week for example left everything but my nether regions feeling pretty good. So I think I am going to buy the fizik aliante with the Ti rails from Performancebike.com for $145. After seeing it in person at the bike store and seeing that every single guy who worked there had it on their bike, I figure I gotta give it a try. The flex in the kevlar/carbon shell seems like it would be so comfortable. So is Performance a good place to order saddles from?
P.S. Do you think it would be worth the drive...Mr Nick

Yes, get it from performance. You can't beat their return policy. I actualy ordered an Aliante from them and didn't like it. The saddle was very nice and well made but not a good shape for me. Returning it even after a few hundred miles was no problem.

That's a lot of money to spend on a saddle you've never ridden. Performance takes away all the risk. Given the choice, I wouldn't buy a saddle from anyone else.
