    Strengths:    Quality construction. Great thigh clearance (narrow profile), comfortable yet light.

    Weaknesses:    None yet

    Bottom Line:   
    A really nice saddle. Yet to pass the test of time (and long rides). Dramatically better saddle/ better padding than early WTB saddles that were much too firm.
    Very pleased with this purchase.

    OT: California Schools Podium!

    [url=http://www.forbes.com/top-colleges/]America's Top Colleges - Forbes[/url] First and second--not too shabby. My school, Cal Poly SLO, finished 170th, but these kinds of rankings are always biased. We would have finished much higher if mountain biking and Ultimate Frisbee had been factors!Read More »
