Weird title, but I love my Toupe, but the nose is just too damn hard. Anyone else switch to anything that was somewhat similar feeling otherwise? I know this sounds a bit weird and its hard to explain, but when moving up on the nose under effort it is pretty rough. I don't know if its the padding, or the stiff shell/where the rails meet the shell that puts the pressure there.

The Romin that came on my '13 Epic has a similar shape but a slightly wider nose with more padding.

If your looking for something with a similar shape/profile than the Selle Italia Flite Flow might be worth a look. I'm referring to the most recent revision where it's basically pan flat
