After decades of trying to get/find a cycle saddle to allow me to cycle in comfort despite my post accident problems, I found bliss in buying the mentioned Hobson saddle. Despite a worsening situation regarding my hips the Hobson saddles I have fitted to my cycles continue to do what they claim to do....allow me to use normal shorts and trousers in great comfort. If people have a desire to use 'normal' saddles, then please carry on, I only know what I find from using the mentioned saddle!
Your thread title didn't say 'Hobson saddles' it just said 'a decent saddle' so some of us were suggesting saddles we found decent. I for one was only trying to be helpful and was very grateful for colin's post.
For anyone interested, the selle italia is working out well so far. And colin's guide was invaluable in checking it's position. It showed me that my my own riding position had been wrong, and I'm doing much better now I have changed it. It got me at least an extra mph or two on my rides this week.
