    Anyone riding a Vader saddle?

    I like the shape and look, but would love to here how it rides.

    Here are two links to what I think is the same saddle on ebay but with slightly different covers. The width will work for me in either case.

    or

    Well, we'll see. I just bought the one in your first link. I figure if I can't use it, someone in my family will.... They look like good saddles and I have read some reviews online and did not find a bad review in the lot. One guy had one negative comment though, he said he bent a frame rail after 2 seasons of riding, but then we do not know how he rides. If he is more of an extreme rider and hard on equipment one might expect a saddle rail to bend on a hard drop etc...

    BTW, I got the saddle for under 16 dollars with shipping! If these things are as nice as I read, that is quite a value. Though I really still want a brooks saddle on my new road bike, I will not have my new road bike here soon enough to give a good review, so when this saddle arrives I will put it on one of my other bikes and give it an hour and a half in the trainer to see what I think...
    No, really! I meant to skip off that rock, bounce off that tree and face plant in the creek!
    I falled down!

    Well, never mind my last response. I won the auction and paid that night. A day or two later I got an email from the ebay store telling me they had refunded my paypal amount and that the saddle I won was the last one like it and had a "Serious defect" so it was not available. they gave me a favorable feedback and so I did to them too. So, I guess it is back to square 1 if these are any good or not...

    It's not like I would have wanted a defective saddle anyway....

    I've had one in a drawer for over a year. So far it still looks nice, but no idea on comfort or durability, lol.
