Fizik Arione Wing Flex Saddle w/Titanium Rails ??????

I have been trying to get a used Brooks saddle for my 80ish Raleigh Competition bike, but not having any luck whatsoever. However, I saw this Fizik saddle on craigslist for $50. It is in excellent condition. Tiny thing though. I checked and the MSRP on this is $149..

Was this a deal, and if it was, how come the used Brooks are not down there at $50 and how does this compare to a Brooks, better or not??

Here is the Fizik.

Saddles are a very personal thing, what works for one won't work for another.

The Arione is a good saddle and that's a good price, but it's primarily a road bike saddle which the Brooks is not. Sorry, but it sounds like you just want a new saddle, and aren't tailoring it to the riding you're doing. Shopping by price alone isn't the way to do it.

First, thanks for the frank reply!

On the kind of riding I am doing? I am a NEWBIE, so, I am doing Newbie riding!! The Brooks comes standard on my 80ish Raleigh Competitions. I have one on my first one, and the second one doesn't have one. I was trying buy a used one, but having problems. So, that is how I came up with the Arione!

BTW, if the Brooks is not a Road Saddle, what is it?

Again, thanks for the frank reply..
