The Bottom Line on Saddles

Common consensus is that you cannot infer much from what bike or components the pros use on the classics and the Tour de France since huge sponsorship MONEY is involved, to the extent that some have suggested, that brands have been altered and re-decaled to please the sponsors. The one component that might not be prostituted is the saddle since I cannot imagine someone riding for 22 days almost in a row for thousands of kilos on anything less than what his or her butt approves of. So, what do the pros use, anybody know? The buck stops here! and afterall the nuts are not supposed to be ball bearings for the rear end.
