Want to know where to get the best deal on a 191g road saddle?
$14.99 @ bikenashbar.com.
Complemment it with a carbon seatpost from PBK- $15.99 and
you get an aesthetically pleasing experience for less than $40.00!
It rides, feels and looks great.
It will improve the quality of your ride.
If you do not have a reason or need to get one...find one:
you will be glad you did so.
$14.99 + S&H (6.99) + tax, still a sweet deal!

This saddle looks better in person than in the website pix. It has nice stream-lined angles and a pretty shape. It reminds me of the Selle Italia C2 Trans Am saddles, and just or more comfortable, but much lighter. Hey, I wish Nashbar had deals like this back in the 80's.

That saddle looks pretty light but I wonder. Can the padding be ripped off this seat? It appears to have a lot of padding and at that weight if you can tear it off I would bet it gets even lighter. For $15 its not a huge risk. I am wondering if it is worth being a WW saddle on the CHEAP.

Can anyone who has one tell if there appears to be something to sit on left after I would I end up with nothing left?

This saddle has racing angles, narrow, super thin padding on a nylon shell...but...it moves with you as you are pedaling, particularly in the sweet spot, since it has an opening at the center, but with an ingenious thin padding overlay. The synthetic leather cover is tight, not abrasive or sticky, soft and smooth. Get one , man, it performs and looks great.
