Ride what the pros ride: Designed and developed in the pro trenches with the LEOPARD TREK team, Bontrager's inForm BioDynamics Team Issue road saddle provides advanced ergonomic support and comfort, just what you need to sustain higher performance when a day at the office (or playing hooky) means six hours in the saddle. Genuine leather cover, solid titanium rails, and full carbon fiber base round out a high-performance package that's professional grade thru-and-thru.
Weaknesses: Absolute horror to ride! Im 200Ib, 6'0, and limber enough to touch my fingers to the floor. I just finished a 40 mile ride and can hardly walk. Decided to switch from my fizik antarez vs saddle just for the heck of it. not enough cush to the pelvic bones. The plastic saddle frame is super stiff w/o any flex, so no conformity to the boney area in the middle. Other saddles Ive been on include the fizik earlier(so,so), evoke rxl(ok), WTB rocket V(great), and WTB pure V(fantastic). The Bonte team saddle came w/ the bike and is something i would never buy anyway(anything bontrager product for that matter).
If you care to rape your internals to the brink of extinction then by all means try out the saddle. I on the other hand have always had better luck using MTB saddles on my roadie, and would suggest you try the same if your brave enough to break the cliche. (if anyone smirks at you, just punch em in the face!) Its ok to still be a weight weenie and let this be your ONE exception ;). I will be trying out the WTB SST next since that has great rev's and my experience w/ WTB saddles in the past has been great.

I picked up a Carbon team issue Crankset off ebay awhile back, now need a bottom bracket for it, anyone have any idea which one I need. To give a little background it is replacing a SRAM Apex Crankset, I measured both the FSA and SRAM spindle with digital calipers and both came out just under 24mm ... Read More »
My brother bought a hardly ridden (less than 500 miles total on the frame) Felt F1 2010 Garmin team bike. Unfortunately he had been fitted to a 58cm, but needs a 56. So he is hoping to sell the frame/fork/BB and Headset while he looks for another frame. If anyone is interested, please let me know. A ... Read More »
Need some help in removing the bottom bracket on my Cervelo P3. I have been able to get one of the crank arms off using a crank puller but have not been able to get the drive side crank and ring assembly off. Is it because I need to get the FSA bearing cup ring (sorry not sure what the terminology ... Read More »
This had been up in my LBS's old shop before their move and then spent a year, forlorn and lonely, in their back room.I asked about it again. Owner said: "$100 and it's yours." The jaw of every wrench and clerk ... Read More »
