I've started to use my (clip on) tri bars more, but now the unforgiving nose on my saddle is starting to kill me. I'm after a new saddle (up to around £60). Does anyone have any recommendations for a comfortable saddle? I've had a look on wiggle but Tri/TT choice is limited/burried among so many others I can't make any decisions and Chain Reaction Cycles have so many uncategorised that i'm lost.

Fizik Arione: http://www.bikesportmichigan.com/reviews/arione.shtml

Not sure of it is in your price bracket, think it may be about £70, hang on, Merlin £64

It seemed like a good idea at the time!!

second recommendation for the fizik arione tri. I started with the profile stryke 'cos it's cheap but after an hour the plastic edging to the cut out digs in. Replaced with arione and good for 6 hours+

Thanks for the replies, hadn't looked at this one and reading the blurb seems it should be quite comfortable, guess I'll buy one unless anyone has another suggestion.

I got one of these (because I thought I'd go cheap first) http://www.sjscycles.co.uk/product.asp?pf_id=16201&src=froogle - not the lightest of saddles at @ 280g (I weighed it & was only 10g heavier than the standard Bontrager it replaced anyway) but well padded in the nose and quite comfortable.

I may go for lighter/more expensive once I can justify the performance improvements
