I just can't seem to help myself. I was just browsing eBay, innocently enough, and there it was. Not even available on store shelves yet. And, a buy-it-now at a price that I just couldn't pass up. An '07 Specialized Toupe Gel.
For those of you familiar with the Toupe, you know it's light, and not much more than a platform. The Gel is a bit more padded (it has a thin layer of gel added to the top). After about 100 miles (including a 43 mile ride), I can report at this time that it's one comfortable saddle!
Poor Linda, I don't think she knows what to do
