    Selle An-Atomica Titanico X saddle for 200+ riders (on sale)

    Howdy,
    (my apologies if this has been discussed but search is not working for any of the forums. Getting error codes)
    This is not some big sales pitch and I don't work for this company, I simply was not getting what I needed with my saddles and was switching them back and forth as well as trying different shorts in combination. (I always wear padded bike riding shorts on long rides. My current favorite being the Canari brand) I suspect that I am not the only older and heavier rider who finds saddle comfort to be the worst part of the biking experience and this is the reason for this post. I think I finally have that problem whipped!

    I have tried several saddles since getting back into road biking last summer. I took the Brooks saddles off and tried the padded ones, and then went back to the Brooks Professionals, but they were really hurting me on long rides.
    In the Schwinn forum there was a discussion about this Selle An-Atomica with center cut-out that is USA made. And this model "Titanico X" is specifically designed for 200+ pound riders. So, I actually bought one in early March and I love it.
    There are numerous testimonials from all over the world, and many touring riders swear by them. Simply Google search and you can read about it in other forums.
    I mounted the first one on my 1981 Schwinn Super LeTour and can attest to the fact that it is a no break-in necessary saddle. It is super easy to adjust with an allen key in the front. It comes with three pages of detailed directions for proper saddle set-up and adjustment. I have the saddle fully dialed-in and it is great. I rode 30 miles with the club this past Saturday and I was realizing how comfortable it really is. I have a couple hundred miles on it now. In fact I bought a second one for my 1972 P15-9 Paramount and have a third one on order now for my 1973 Paramount P10-9.

    This is the link to the product page. http://www.selleanatomica.com/store/ (Scroll down, it is the saddle that is between the black and brown leather handlebar tape)
    The sale is marked down from $189.98 to $99.98 (plus S&H)
    I think the sale is to convince "Clydesdale" riders to try this saddle as they make them to order, so this is not an overstock liquidation. Takes about ten days from order to delivery via Priority mail.

    Here are a few pics from me.

    I like mine as well. I think the "Brown Leather Sale" has been going on for a few months. Great value!

    I got mine a couple of weeks ago also, after the first ride I had to adjust the tension, I was hoping that this problem was taken care of with the X version. Soon as the weather warms up a bit I'll start riding to work in the morning and hopefully no more adjustments needed. I have three others not being the X model one on my wife's bike and the other on my touring bike and one back up. These are the most comfortable seats out of the box.

    Just bought a black one. Not on sale but what the heck. I have the regular Titanico on my mountain bike. Love the new saddle and the long rails sealed the deal for me.
