Was having saddle issues, tried a few but no luck. Very happy with the WTB Volt Race saddle in 150mm width, reasonable at $55+-. If you're looking for a new saddle take a look at it. My weight is 245+-.

I'm using a WTB Speed 145mm on my KHS roadbike,. I can even ride without padded shorts with this saddle. My 29er came with an older WTB saddle, not sure of the model, but that is why I went with hte WTB for the roadbike. Preetty comfy for what it is.

I bought it at a Performance Bike shop before they closed. I got it for $30... I like it, and started using it at 300 pounds. Now at 263...
