upgrade saddle / seat post on Dahon d7

Hello !

So, i have had my dahon mariner d7 for a few now, but the seat is unforgiving around town. I was thinking about maybe replacing the seat at some point. i have read a bunch online about upgrading the seat (saddle), a "thudbuster" (if they make one the size of the dahon seat post?) , the Biologic Suspension Seat Post, etc. I need a comfort ride but i also don't want to be jiggling around like jello cup. i was leaning towards a new seat, i find that the Brooks b67 is good? (Hard to believe after seeing it in person) and i find it a bit pricey.. i was wondering if any of you guys have had similar situation or have any recommendations / Experiences ?

sure there are two models of the thudbuster seatposts.... the long version and the more sporty short travel ones....
the tern/Dahon suspension seatpost works well, but I think its more for leisure riding

brooks.. hard as hell ... I cant get over that, as I don't ride that much .. people who ride a lot love them
( and here is my problem, peeps who ride a lot are also comfortable on other good quality saddles )

We sell economic saddles with little gel , they are not gel saddles filled with guuh which wobbles from side to side, just a small amount a the right place. there is a difference between Walmart super soft and a saddle from the bike dealer ...
