And out, too...
Got it on Saturday -too late for my Saturday ride (which was a brute, btw... in a good way)- so I threw it on the bike on Sunday and took it out for its maiden voyage Monday evening. After 12 miles what my first impression? The saddle is hard. Damned hard... and incredibly slippery. The nose was a bit down in front and just kept sliding all over the place. Granted, I haven't Proofrided it or anything... just straight out of the box and on to the bike. I don't want to grease it up until I know I'm not returning it.
But when I got my butt in -what I think is- the right spot, I knew it. You can really feel the ol' sit bones as 2 discreet points of contact. But oddly enough, the saddle just feels -I don't know- right? It is comfortable in a weird sort of way. You are perched on it and the legs swing completely free. There is no wasted energy going into flexing a cushy saddle. You push down on the pedal and the power just goes straight to the road. I feel more efficient. Why, I hardly even noticed the extra weight
I played with the adjustment a little just a bit ago. Obviously it still needs some tweaking - the nose looks too high. Feels OK but I know I should have it a little more level. Stupid Bontrager post seems to have no level, though; it's up at the nose or down. We'll see how that plays out.
Looks pretty darned good on that bike, though.
