Fizik Pave' saddle questions.(4 posts)

Any experience here with the Fizik Pave' saddle? While hanging out at the local shop I found one of these that they had pulled off of a C'dale recently. It seemed to be light enough, and the color (silver and charcoal) will go well with the white frame, but I was wondering if anyone had ridden it. I prefer a flatter saddle, and am riding Bontrager FS+10 on my Mountainbikes. The saddle I am replacing is a Serfas Torrent. My other choices without going mail order are:

Serfas DD Pro, A bit of a pig, but popular and mostly flat.

Serfas Aria, Lightweight, but hard. Nice flat saddle though.

Serfas Arroyo, similar to the DD Pro with a small groove for my tender bits.

Specialized Body Geometry, Not a bad Saddle but a bit wide in the back for my sit bones.

This is the one part of the bike where I am not going to worry too much about cost as it is VERY important.

My favorite saddle by far and away. Tried many, slowly replacing everything with Pave. Like the Aliante too, but Paves can be had for a song (eBay.)

As opposed to Terry B, I hated the Pave. To me, it was like taking my urologist along for the ride. If you want a flatter saddle, try the Vitesse - Fizik's ladies' saddle. It's done me fine.

I did not like it. I switched from a Terry Fly and just could never get used to it. I felt a lot of pressure up front and tried several saddle positions and tilts with no luck. I switched to a Selle Flite Genuine Gel and now all is well.

Of course, saddles are very personal, so it may fit you better than it did me. Esp. if you want something a bit narrower.

PS - I've still got the Pave'. Black, ti rails with the twin tech gel. I'll give you a really good deal, if you are interested. jason_mooreatfastmaildotfm
