PUT THIS ON MY BAD WEATHER COMMUTER - TORKER KB2 , 7 MILES ONE WAY JUST NORTH OF DETROIT CITY LIMITS - "BREAK - IN PERIOD" ? SEAT WAS MORE COMFORTABLE THAN THE BOARD THAT CAME W/BIKE IN ABOUT 10 SECONDS. AFTER 1 WEEK [75 MI.]
HARDLY KNOW IT'S THERE . WAITING FOR 2ND
SADDLE FOR GOOD WEATHER BIKE . BIKES ARE NOT OUTSIDE W/O ME ON THEM SO THEFT
AND RAIN ARE NOT ISSUES FOR ME. IF YOU ARE ON A BIKE LONGER THAN 15 MINUTES AT A TIME, THIS SADDLE IS WORTH EVERY PENNY!
This saddle is heavy, expensive, theft-prone, high-maintenance, will stain your jeans if you don't use a cover, and it looks kind of stodgy and archaic with its great big springs.
It gets five stars from me despite all that, because the comfort is simply unbelievable. The saddle shape is just right for me, even with very little break-in time, and the springs make streetcar tracks and small potholes just disappear.
