harder than a brand new Unicanitor. My next step is to get a larger drill bit in the chuck and make those holes bigger. I'm saving it for the drop bar conversion I'm building on the $100 clunker contest thread.
Big thanks to Noglider for starting this thread, I've had that waffle saddle on my eBay watch list for about 6 months, but something has stopped me from pulling the trigger. I've almost bought that thing at least a half a dozen times.
