there are 2 main things to consider.
The saddle has to fit your ass, and the post the frame.
Step one is to find out the required seatpost diameter. If the bike is recent production you might find that on a company's website spec. sheet for that bike, or if you post the exact brand and model here someone here might know. Otherwise it's either measure or trial and error.
Saddles are much easier, but there are zillions of choices.
All in all, your best bet would be to visit the local shop and get both fitted properly. I find that saddles are like shoes, something I don't like to buy over the net, unless I'm buying an identical version of one I have and like already.
