I will throw my 2 cents in. I am almost 60 and ride my Comotion NWT. I have ridden on a Brooks Professinal for years and have enjoyed it. I agree with others that saddles are subjective and what works for one, may not work for the others. We tried a Terry Liberator X & Y and returned them. They were very stiff and a 30 day trial, when in actuality a 20 day trial, was not enough. (We have enough saddles in our saddle box) With my prostate issues, I may look at a different saddle. On a visit to Gainesville, Fl. while visiting AD of Villin Custom Cycles, he had been on a Brooks for years and switched to Selle Royal Gel Saddle for around $120 (Less if you research) He swore by it. Now if I can find an outfit that would give me a 60 day test.....

Somebody has already mentioned Brooks Saddles.  Here is a good review: http://www.mtbr.com/cat/controls/saddle/brooks/saddle/PRD_352800_140crx.aspx.  They're made in the UK so I'm not sure if they are already distributed in the US.
Calhoun Cycle in Minneapolis carries a lot of Brooks Saddles and will ship.

Brooks saddle take time to break but they are very comfortable once they are. The "Flyer" modesl have extra suspension. Check their website:
