45 degree saddle?
So, i received an "hand me down" saddle to replace my Bontrager stock POS. ('05 Trek 1200). its a beautiful saddle as you can see below. Here's the issue.
I was riding this weekend on a training ride when 2 miles in i rolled over some RR tracks. as soon as i did, my saddle went to a 45 degree angle (nose up).
Now, i know i'm 6'2" 260, but should this have happened? In your experiences, can this saddle hold my weight? Or could it just have been an installation issue?
Unfortunately, my 2 year old got sick so i couldn't test ride my tightened saddle, but wanted to get some feedback anyways.
