|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
