Pick my next saddle...

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Pick my next saddle...

OK, so i've had it with the Toupe. I thought it was working, but after 1 year, i'm convinced it's not...

So, I have the Arione Tri2 on my TT bike and like that, and may try that next.

I realize saddles are a personal thing, so i'm just looking for suggestions on what to try next. If it fails, I promise not to hate .

Only other requirement is that it must be available in White!

Try the regular Arione on your roadie ... especially since you have and like the tri version.

I don't think you can go wrong with the Selle Italia SLK. I just got one last week and I LIKE IT. There is a thread about it on here somewhere.

+1.

Either that or get thee to an assometer and have a professional make a suggestion and install/fit on the bike. If you use the meter, be sure to lean forward like you would be sitting on the bike.
