multiple bikes, multiple seats??

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

multiple bikes, multiple seats??

for those that have multiple bikes, what seats do you ride with? do you have multiple brands and types? ive got three seats im very happy with and two which are marginally comfy.

concor lite, awesome
forte sl pro, awesome
bontrager inform, pretty nice
fizik poggio, tolerable
forte fizik ripoff, too padded and wide

Five bikes. The three I ride most often have Brooks B-17s, but that's almost by accident--I bought the first one retail, found the second in a thrift shop, new in the box, for $4.50 and got the third with a $25 mountain bike I bought at a garage sale for my daughter to take to school.
My mountain bike has an old, cheap Avocet, because it spends a lot of time in rain and snow and I don't want to think about it, and I have a folding bike, rarely ridden, with an old Brooks Pro I had in the garage.
I'm not very sensitive to saddles--never had a problem even when I rode 4500 miles a year. But I love those B-17s.

Two Brooks B-17s for less than $30!! I need to frequent thrift stores and garage sales more ... well, frequently.

Two bikes, two saddles ... same brand just different levels of "aggressiveness" (bontrager inform and affinity I believe).

Road bike: Selle San Marco Rolls - Stable platform, firm, easy to slide around (in a good way)
Road bike: Selle San Marco Regal - Luxurious saddle (really gives a "locked in" feel)
Mountain bike: Old Selle Italia Flite - $5 at a swap meet. Narrow and out of the way, perfect for singlespeed mountain biking (lots of standing and mashing).
Cyclocross bike: Older WTB Podium - Firm yet comfy, with a gel cutout and kevlar corners. Tough enough for CX.

All saddles have real leather covers, and none are a pain in the ass
