Just got a new tri bike that came with a Selle Italia Trans Am saddle which I am not a big fan of. Recommendations please?

Depending on how aggressively you position yourself on the saddle, you'll probably want to look for one that has a nose with more padding than usual. Trial and error is really the best way to find a good saddle though. I recommend starting with an inexpensive one. Performance Bike has one or two house brands (Forte) which may work.
Another one to consider would be the Blackwell Research Adamo ISM seat:
I'm thinking of trying it out sometime later this year just for s***s and giggles. :lol:

fizik arione tri &
fizik arione tri2
They have worked the best for me during the past year.
The tri 1 is a little more forgiving and comfortable.
The tri 2 is a little tougher to sit on unless you are hauling @$$. But it is virtually flat. As I slide forward, I don't slide down. Makes me feel more efficient.
A couple of my friends love the Profile Airstryke. I rode it for a couple of months, but it was too cushiony for me.

another recommendation for the fizik arione tri. i added a desoto 5mm-gel seat cover for 70.3-length races and training, and now just leave it on. it makes up for the lack of padding in tri-shorts.

What is the difference between the regular arione (which I have and love on my road bike) and the tri version?

Adamo no question about it the feeling of feeling your junkyard after 100 miles is fantastic
