I think the SMP TRK and Phorm S310 saddles are a good place to start - and they are well under three digits.

But remember, Kerry has had both his hips replaced and he was still riding up the best of the Alps. It did not appear to slow him down. It shouldn't slow you down either once rehab is over.

I think its more of a frame issue than a wheel issue - although I would not say its very common. Some bike makers simply do not provide much clearance, and its a shame. Also, wider rims tend to be...
