Strengths:    Looks nice

Weaknesses:    Ouch! Feels like cardboard - $65???

Bottom Line:   
I weigh 180, 5'10", and little fat. My last seat is the Specialized Body Geometry Comp, which I have used for like the past 10 yrs. (I still have it on my old steed). I love that seat. Very comfortable. I rode 1 mile with this seat and thought 'holy crap, this is painful'. A**bones and perineum were not having it. After reading the reviews here, I decided on the WTB. Aaaaaaah. That's more like it!!

Strengths:    Good looks, light weight, reasonable price

Weaknesses:    Seat pan is very, very weak...It cracked at the nose of the saddle!

Bottom Line:   
I purchased this seat based on the strengths listed above. Turns out the low weight is obtained by Syncros spec'ing a very cheap seat pan that failed on the second test ride of my bike I just built up. The seat pan cracked in half at the nose of the saddle just aft of where the rails are secured to the pan. I could not believe my eyes when, during a parking lot test ride, the entire pan and padding of my saddle fell off and I was left with nothing but rails to sit on.

I would not recommend this product to anyone unless they WANT TO be disappointed.

Strengths:    Comfort

Weaknesses:    Small amount of play around rails.

Bottom Line:   
Great seat. Very comfortable. The weight is also nice. Only have about 15 rides on it, but so far no complaints. Out of the box it had a bit of play/movement which did not inspire confidence, but there were no issues and it doesn't make any noise. Would buy again.

Took the FATBOY plunge... (and I am loving it)

This bike is absolutely amazing! It is a very capable all around mountain bike. People get fooled by the size of the tires, but once they hop on it, they realize how fun it is! I go down and UP stairs, corner better than ever, climb tricky spots with ease... My Blur and Enduro have been collecting d ... Read More »

Who uses their Airborne as a AM/Trail bike?

So I am 2-3 months into my first MTB ownership with an Airborne Seeker. I will admit I didn't really understand the whole XC, Trail, AM classifications when I bought the bike. At this point in my "education" I would describe XC as smooth off road, Trail as rough, rocky, rooty single track with moder ... Read More »

WTF Am I Doing Wrong

I started out on a ride today and as I'm going along on the road to get to the singletrack, i hear a rubbing in my front brakes. So much so that it is annoying to hear and feel, but not strong enough that I feel resistance. im using the Shimano BR-M810 hydraulic disc brakes. I went home, pulled the ... Read More »

I just got a 2008 blur lt spx xc. I am stoked!

I saw the local bike shop, near where I just moved, was having a swap meet sale thing. It is where u take ur bike and leave it with a price and they sell it on one day. Pretty cool, so I got there 30 minutes early thinking if there is any great deals u have to be there first. Well alot of people had ... Read More »

Final hand-wringing over my AM/enduro bike choice: SC/Pivot/Intense/Turner/Yeti?

I've been ridiculously fortunate this year to have some extra income show up, so I have the "problem" of deciding between bikes. I'm sure several of you have already heard the spiel, but for some background, here it is: I'm 6'2, 210, and have a 35" cycling inseam. I'm a long time XC/road/tri ride ... Read More »
