The one I sent to Brad was (I think) a Selle Italia San Marco Era Lux. The USPS team used to ride on that saddle... not the Lux one, which has some extra padding.What kind of seat was it? I am researching saddles and trying to get opinions on a bunch of different ones.
Personally, I have a Terry Fly Tri Gel. It cost around $130 and has been with me for a very comfortable 10,000+ miles in the saddle. You should go out and just try some. Some bike shops will let you do it, some won't, some have a short period in which to test it. Terry (originally only made saddles for women) has a 30-day policy. If you don't like it, return it. That's what originally made me go for it. Also, it's a triathalon saddle, so it is meant to be used by individuals who sit on it for longer periods, in an aerodynamic position, without standing.
Really, your ass is different than anyone else's ass. You need to listen to your own ass when it comes to bike saddles. ;D
