Crashed and bent my saddle rails...fixable?
So, the title pretty much covers it. I was taking a set of kickers, cleaned the first, cased the second, slammed into the seat and then went airborne, did a wicked dive-roll, bruised my shoulder and some ribs, saddle is hosed.
The rails (steel) are completely smashed into the shell of the saddle, at fairly sharp angles where they clamp to the post.
Has anyone ever salvaged a saddle in this condition? Or should I just call it a loss and get a new one? It's a specialized body geometry (came stock on my bike, but it's comfy), so it's not like it's priceless.
