Selle Anatomica "Brown Leather Sale"

What exactly is this? I'm assuming it means the leather is brown, but they don't say on the website and do not answer their phones.

Thanks

Third one down. The brown leather basic model is on sale. I picked one up about two months ago. It's an excellent saddle.

http://www.bikeforums.net/showthread...-saddle./page4 It's also discussed on pages 4 and 5 of this thread... with photos!

Yep..I know where to find it..my question is more...what is it? Is it simply what it says...a Titanico X in brown leather or is it something else? The website doesn't give any additional description other than the same one for all seats.

DAMN! I just bought 2 leather VO saddles. I have really liked the Selle Anitomicas but really couldn't justify the $200 price. I would've taken a chance for $100. Oh well, maybe next time...

Best saddle made I don't leave home without it. My friend will be riding in Europe this summer and renting bikes. He is going to take his Selle An-atomic with him.

I'm hoping I'll like it. I didn't like that they don't indicate how long it will take to get your order. I didn't like that they charged my card immediately and then told me 10-14 business days to ship. When I asked about it they said it was because I used PayPal to pay them...when I mentioned that their "checkout" link takes you directly to PayPal and didn't offer any other options they went radio silence. It seems like this is a small-ish family owned business due to the way questions are handled, phones aren't answered during published business hours, etc.

I'll forgive all that if the seat is good.
