    Selle An-Atomica saddles

    Selle An-Atomica saddles has just announced the 2012 Holiday Saddle Sale. Now through the end of the year pay $99 for the 2012 Titanico and Titanico X. I have ridden one of these saddles for a little over a year (about 8,000 miles) and it is without a shadow of a doubt the best saddle that I have owned. If you have ever wanted a leather saddle now is the time and this is the one, to buy.

    That sounds like a good deal, but do you need to post the same thing in multiple forums?
    Punctuation is important. It's the difference between "I helped my uncle, Jack, off a horse" and "I helped my uncle Jack off a horse"

    I think there is good reason for that sale. The X was the most uncomfortable saddle I've ridden, so I would just advise anyone purchasing it in the blind make darn sure you can return it for a full refund if it's not to your liking. Very nice people, I hope they find their niche market.

    If the tension is too high or the tilt is wrong, yes the saddle will be very uncomfortable. If those two things are sorted out, the saddle becomes much more comfortable.
    After a surgery in late April to remove several large cysts over my right sitbone, I am now asymmetrical and the incision site is very tender (when you cut fat, it never knits together and has to fill up with scar tissue which can take months or even years). The titanico has been the only saddle so far where my ass is not on fire at the end of a ride.

    Saddles are an individual decision. Some saddles that are extremely comfortable to some people are not comfortable at all to others. We all have different shapes "down there" and different riding styles. I use a Brooks B17 and it is supremely comfortable for me, but that doesn't mean it is comfortable for everyone. Discussions about saddle comfort are endless

    I've had very good luck with SAs on our tandem up until I bought a new single (more aggressive) and lowered the bars on my tandem to match. Since then I've had difficulty getting the SA dialed in. Still, the saddle itself, after several thousand miles, seems as good as new; I've had little or no stretch, but I'm only 200 lbs.

    Interesting. I have been riding a Titanico X all this year and find it just as comfortable as my Brooks B17. The X has the added advantage of being water-resistant. I made no adjustments and bolted it straight onto the bike. Im 280lbs.

    The Selle saddle is different. I bought one with high hopes as an alternative to the Brooks. I am used to a
    Brooks Professional. The Selle X is a different feel. I have it on my Trek 520 and have the Brooks on my Trek Cronus. I will say that the Selle X is not as comfortable "yet" as the Brooks. I would agree with others who say " see if you can try without buying" any saddle. I love my Brooks but I've ridden it for years and many miles. I haven't given the Selle that kind of test.
