Strengths:    Seems like a great seat. It stays out of your way...it is light weight, strong rails, looks fantastic

Weaknesses:    Not made to be a fluffy

Bottom Line:   
This seat is made for XC riding and racing. If your looking for comfort that is secondary only to your Lazy Boy, this is not it. However, if you are a serious XC rider who wants a seat that stays out of your way and dosn't rub you raw, this is the real deal. It is fantastic on Full Suspension. Not sure I would want it on a hard tail.

Submitted by Duane a Weekend Warrior from Georgia, USA

Date Reviewed: November 10, 2001

Strengths:    Not too expensive, and looks good.

Weaknesses:    The fact that it's broke

Bottom Line:   
Seat looks great. Slim and lightweight. I was planning to buy a gel cover for it this weekend (good thing I decided to wait). Even with the gel in the seat, it was still hard on the keister. Today I went over a couple of drops, and almost pulled the rails out of the saddle's nose and bent one of them. It would be a hazard to keep it on the bike now. I wouldn't get this seat if your a clydsedale that likes to play hard.

Advice for Fat Gravel Century

Every year I do a early spring gravel grinder here in Wisconsin called the B.A.L.L.S. ride. 107 miles first day, 67 miles second day. Route is rail trail, 50 mi of ATV "mixed use trail" and 5 miles of pavement. Weather is usually horrible and trail conditions are a mix. With our ongoing winter, ... Read More »

Concept 1865 - from the middle of 19th century to the present

Hard to find the best category to post this, I guess 'Passion' was the best fit. I know, not a MTB but valid for its innovation.

Emergency repair of the century

I went to Balm Boyette scrub preserve today to do some riding. At 10 miles in my rear wheel gobbled up my derailleur and broke the hanger. Sweet. I cut the chain down to fit it to the middle ring on my 1 x 9 setup and cut several inches of extra webbing from the strap on my Da Kine water/gear pack ... Read More »
