Hey Hottody, I did a lot of research, and was recommended the fizik arione by JensonUSA, and another shop, but I weigh a little more than average at 195the lbs, so I found a good deal on the alliante, and figured id give it a try. I thinkcan its geareda towards bigger riders. I may have gotten lucky, but the seat fits me well, and is a huge improvement over the stock seat. I can ride 30 miles and barely think about it. The Fizik actually flexes like a saddle should, not stiff as a board like the stock one.
