    You can get a new, plain black flite from performance for only $55, $25 more than that nashbar saddle..

    or check ebay if you really want one

    I use the Nashbar Ti racing saddle. it's light weight, and works fine. I'm not too picky about saddle comfort. I don't notice much difference in the comfort level of different (narrow) saddles. So light and cheap is fine with me.

    How do the brooks stand up to weather. I'd really like one but since I oddly enough do most of my riding in the winter I'm hesitant what with all the care people seem to put in to them. (i'm treeplanting most of the summer so most of my riding is done when i'm at school)

    most folks baby 'em too much. if ya want, just put a plastic bag over it and go. me? if mine gets all wet, i just put some leather dressin' on it and it's fine. gives it a nice broken in look. they're tougher than ya think and ever so comfy on the ol' arsebones when ya get it all set. it's custom then.

    I have an old Wright saddle (like brooks) on my grocery getter bike. I pulled it off a free yardsale bike. It's probably at least 30 years old, and has apparently been used for most of it's life. This a bike I leave out in the rain and never worry about. Was my daily rider for most of the summer. I've never treated this saddle in any way, and it's still holding up just fine. If I had a nice new one I'd probably proofide it and treat it nice, but I refuse to do the plastic bag on the seat thing. if a seat can't take a little rain it shouldn't be on a bike in my opinion.
