Shopping for a bike to pick up in Berlin for a tour and have contact with someone selling an obscure "Mezorex X-Cross Laser XT" (http://bikes.mezorex.com/index_old.html)...or something like that. The components look fine for my purposes, but I'm having a time finding out much at all on the Mezorex (only a few, half-dead webpages), and despite being sold as a Brooks saddle..that sure don't look like a Brooks Flyer to me. Hence, my wonderment about the whole shooting match.
Can anybody help me ID this thing, in particular the saddle? Has anyone ever, EVER heard of a Mezorex (and no, it's not an acne medication, at least I don't think so)?
Thanks for any insights...
The Saddle looks like a Brooks Conquest, same shape as a Team Pro, but with springs:thumb:

fks: Thanks, you appear to be absolutely correct. My knowledge of Brooks products is low and my ability to find that particular model zero. Now I see it (as attached).
I'd bring my own seat from home (and peddles). Leather saddles form fit to a rider from new.
I don't know how well/fast they can form fit again to another rider.

I agree. Both my saddle and pedals are in the duffel, now about 12 hours from heading off. I'll give the Brooks a ride or two and see how it feels. Never ridden on a leather saddle, outside of the very occasional horse ride.
If you don't like the Conquest you can always post it to me ;);)

fks: About 10 days into my trip, and the Brooks is working like a angel-charm-good bike saddle. I´m never going back. My plastic "Liberator" has stayed in the panniers the whole trip. The Brooks is definitely making the trip back to the States with me.
