Need replacement saddle for Bad Boy 6: Any comfy recommendations

I just got my Cannondale Bad Boy 6 2014 today and on my ride home, I kept lifting my bottom off of the seat due to the sheer pain caused by the seat. I desperately need a saddle which is comfortable on long rides. Preferably one that is padded.

I have a Fizik Vitesse, a 'unisex', their CP[3] (comfort performance Cubed) is thicker padding than the HP, which I have also ..


But really you need to sit on a variety of saddles .. as I assume you will lock this bike up on the city streets ,

perhaps you need a cheap seat for that and a separate one for your long distance weekend rides
So that locked up in the city the cheap saddle wont be an issue when it gets nicked ..

Brooks Flyer. A sprung leather saddle is always comfortable on long rides. You do NOT want padding!
