Own a Roubaix or Fuji Cross? I want your saddle!

I loved the saddle on my Fuji Cross Pro but I stupidly sold the bike with the saddle on it. It's just a cheapo "Fuji Ultralite Racing" saddle but it was perfect and of course I've searched high and low and you can't buy just that saddle anywhere. So, if you replaced the saddle on your Fuji Roubaix or Cross I would love to purchase it from you. Send me a PM or leave me some contact info and let me know how much you want for it. I already tried my local Craigslist and ebay with no luck. . .

Thanks

Out fishing with Annie on his lap, a cigar in one hand and a ginger ale in the other, watching the sunset.

Thanks for the link Tom. Unfortunately they don't have the "Fuji Ultralite Racing" saddle that comes standard on the Roubaix and Cross bikes. I even went to my local Fuji dealer and couldn't talk them in to selling me one off of one of their bikes.

It's not the one I'm looking for, but it does look very similar. I actually saw that on ebay last night and I might give it a try if I can't locate one soon.

I own a Specialized Alias, a Fizik Arione, and a Selle San Marco something or other. None of them fit me like that stupid Fuji saddle did.

you mean that a dealer can't order that saddle as a replacement part? Seems kind of strange that they can't. What if you buy the bike new, and something happens to the saddle (like some $%#@!* steals it), seems kind of strange to make a part that can't be directly replaced.
