I like The lynx and the trailmaster for burlier saddles. I have ridden them both and they are super comfortable if you are looking for something more xcish check out the moon.
Used Shimano M-545 SPD Pedals. A great pedal for DH, AM or XC applications. Also have new cleats I will throw in for the pedals. 40 dollars. Will ship at buyers expense. Email email@example.com for actual pics.
