What Brand of Saddle do you use?

Please do NOT vote in this poll.

It does not allow multiple choices, which is needed for those using multiple saddles.

We can only vote once? But what if we have more than one bike?

QUIT VOTING IN THIS POLL!!!!

DARN IT!

Vote in the other one, that allows for multiple votes.

Anyone who votes in this poll will be required to chug a bottle of full-fat blue cheese salad dressing.

Trust me, gentlemen -- there is nothing like a Brooks Pro with 50k miles / 80k km of one's own use. Talk about a comfortable custom fit! Of course, your mileage may differ.

Send me the blue cheese dressing - I would be more than willing to drink it. We don't have it down here. See, paradise is not perfect!

I just watched a 30 minute TV program, in high definition, on Costa Rica. Very, very beautiful. With a surprisingly diverse climate for a small country. I already knew some of those things, for I assisted a friend a couple years ago in checking out CR for a possible retirement location.

The way My butt feels this morning- I think my saddle has been using me- Only did 30 miles but it was on road or trails- soaking wet shorts and liner and it was on the MTB
