The problem with using noseless saddles on regular bikes is that the rider tends to slide forward off the seat. A number of these saddles try to accommodate this by mounting further backward, and they do give better seating comfort but the more-leaned-forward position results in more hand pressure and neck strain, so it often just amounts to trading one kind of discomfort for another.

If saddle (dis)comfort is a major problem then you might consider a recumbent or semi-recumbent bike. The RANS Fusion advertised here is one option that provides much better comfort than a typical bike, but that still looks and rides pretty normal.
