Known as the grandfather of the group, the Slim Jim has always been SDG's original "Bad Boy". Since the creation of SDG, the Slim Jim design has made every catalog and established itself as a versatile ride in the same class as the Bel Air, but with a slightly more minimalist mentality. BMX, DH, 4X, or just being one with the mountain, this saddle will handle all your riding needs.

Strengths: Light, strong.
Weaknesses: Looks ugly, very uncomfortable
Don't buy it. It has no relief grooves so it creates alot of pressure and makes your lower half numb after even short rides. There are alot better saddles out there for cheaper. 2 chilis because its light and strong
Bike Setup: Dekerf generation hardtail, with XT, Raceface, and Z2 fork.

Strengths: strong, light, looks good
It's a real nice saddle. I got it for around 40 from price point. It's comfortable, looks good, and its strong. Kevlar corners and titanium rails. Its so good I dont even think about it anymore. Really what good bike stuff should be like. I just need a thudbuster to smooth it out and that would be sweet.
This saddle was bought for 40 bucks and is worth double that.You can use this saddle every type of riding although it may be a little heavy for the full blown XC racer.A good narrow profile without sacrificing comfort plus it certainly sports THE LOOK.

Strengths: Great looks comfortable lite and slim
Weaknesses: bent rails Cover is becoming lose (glue)
I`ve been using this seat for about 3 weeks now, I can move around with no restriction, my shorts do not catch on the nose of this seat when I`m standing pedaling and go to a seated position, or when my butt is over the rear wheel on downhills, the back of this seat is so narrow an slim. I can`t believe how comfortable and supportive this seats is for my butt being this slim.I Love this seat, the blue emboss SDG cover with black kevlar corners looks cool. But after about a week of riding the beautiful blue cover is starting to come unglued from the base of the seat,an the rails are bent slightly I only weight 145lbs, my friends are now teasing me on the amount of money I spent and how poorly the seat is holding up. after 3 weeks of riding and one small crash the blue cover is almost completely lose. what and embarrassment when two of my friends are running around with cheap seats that look an seem fine, I`m quite upset with the quality for the money, But the comfort, slim design an blue emboss cover are cool looking, it`s ashame they don`t make them better, I love this seat!5 turds for looks,design and comfort 4 turds because the cover real lose almost flapping and 3truds on count of the rails bending, what ashame because it`s a nice seat

Strengths: WOW! i paid $5 at a swap meet for a green glittery ti model
a steal at $5, i would have paid $70 list and it would still be a deal. i used to have a synthetic leather ventura that i thought was cool, this seat beats the s*** out of it. if the ventura in 5 stars, the slim jim is 8 stars. you would think its too skinny, but it rules. 5 stars is an insult
So - which would you pick and why?
For general riding with 120mm fork, 1x10. To compliment a Nimble 9 (rigid and ss).
In UK so Honzo easily cheapest, SJ and YS similar in price. YS is lighter.Read More »
I've been looking at the 2SoulsCycles QH and Slim Jim frames, either an XL for the SJ, or XXL for the QH (XL is sold out and still waiting on an answer for XXL QH). And as Nevada 29er pointed out to me in a PM, all the 2Souls geometry figures are based on a 100mm Reba. Guess I overlooked that fact w ... Read More »
The QH is currently out of stock, but the Slim Jim is essentially the same bike with smaller 27.2 ST and 2.25 rear tire clearance. Also less jack ($), more color options, and available now!
Anyone take taken delivery of one of these bad boys yet?

Picked up a pair of Blackspire slim Jim pedals. Nice pedal and super thin. However the pins are a little short and I'm not getting great grip.
Does anyone know what size pins they take or any other manufacturer ? I've mailed Blackspire but no word yet. Also can't seem to find any re ... Read More »

I bought a pair of Gusset Slim Jim pedals. I've always used clipless pedals until now, but ...and don't laugh... I've bought a recumbent, and it has rather evil low speed handling, and I need to be able to bail out pretty quickly!
