Why not get yourself a nice Gilles Berthoud Galibier saddle? It is really light for a leather saddle and very comfortable.

I would definitely give it a try some day. After riding a Fizik Arione for 2 years, I started this season on a Brooks Swift. It looked the part, but was very very uncomfortable :? . That it why I went back to my trusty Fizik after two months. It looked like crap on my Renovo though. That is why I got myself a Gilles Berthoud Galibier. It looks much better on modern bikes than the Brooks and it is sooo comfortable.

I sold mine a few weeks back in favour of the wider model. The guy who purchased it from me send me a picture of the bike he put in on. Looks pretty sweet on a modern bike in my opinion :mrgreen:

I got it from T3 Bikes in Spore, they got the whole range even the super lite ones. Saddle
must be dialed in just right if not yr ass will hurt!!! Good pair of bibs will also help. Leather
seats always look like that when seasoned! I used the saddle on my custom Firefly di2 and
now switch to a 2012 SLR carbon seat which is a bit more comfy.
