    For your viewing pleasure.

    !!!!!
    I don't really even know exactly what I'm looking at there! I mean, I know...but I don't think I absorb my saddle to that amount. That's just strange. And did they put stickers on that poor person's skin or write on them?

    I think NSFW might be appropriate here, but very interesting.

    Filmed in Wisconsin. I wonder if that is megaman or RCK?

    I think the color is a coincidence. It's the underside of the Selle-An-Atomica saddle, which is actually quite wonderfully comfortable. I think the writing is on the leather, not the person. I never realized before watching this that uncolored leather is same color in some cases as the arse sitting on it!

    Oh! That's the saddle and it's in two parts that flex? That's way better than a naked person with leg warmers on.

    Actually, that's a pretty compelling video for that saddle, then! When I thought it was a person's skin I was seeing, the saddle looked more like a thong to me.

    LOL ... I don't see a big market for thong saddles.

    Nope, not even going to make them at my new company.

    OMG! Both me & the wife thought it was someone riding with no pants & the seat looked more like a thong.

    I posted it because it looks just like two cheeks. No need to apologize. It's really, really funny. Unintentionally, but funny none the less.

    The funny thing is . . . how could anyone look at this video from a serious perspective, and not see it as funny? No one is that serious I hope!

    I just ordered one of those saddles. Not sure what I was looking at there but I hope that's not what it will look like going down the road.

    Not that serious. Just go look at all the bikeforums.net posters vying for one of ten test saddles from Brooks! The saddle they are proposing has cut outs. Wonder if it will compare?

    What a coincidence...I just installed a Selle An-atomica this weekend. As I posted yesterday, I rode a metric century yesterday (Sunday) and was using this saddle for the first time. It was great! 63 miles, 3700 feet of climbing, no saddle problems.

    As a long-time Brooks owner, I think I've found a new favorite saddle.

    Ooh!! Tell me more! I need a new saddle, and I loved the feel of the Selle An-Atomica that was on that Bleriot I test rode a couple months back. Is it as wonderful as you imagined?

    Hey Smokester. Just don't let anyone put a candid camera on your bike and you'll be fine.

    Short answer: yes, it was wonderful.

    In fact, it was so comfortable, I felt like I was "cheating" somehow (aren't you supposed to suffer to break in a new saddle?).

    Of course, saddles are highly personal...and everyone is different. My personal comparison is a couple of Brooks saddles....

    My previous "favorite" saddle is an old Brooks Professional that I got 27 years ago...nicely broken in, fits my sit bones...I would never part with it. I got it back when I was riding long distances, and I couldn't find a saddle that was comfortable after 60 miles or so...the thing I like about a Brooks is that it feels at 100 miles like it does right out of the gate. The Brooks Pro, however, is currently occupied on my commuting bike.

    So, for my new bike (that I got last Fall), I stupidly decided to be both vain and cheap at the same time. Instead of getting another Brooks Pro, I got a Brooks Swift (mainly because it's so very cool looking) but to be cheap, I bought it used on eBay. It's a great saddle, and turned out to be 98% new, but it's too narrow for me...but since I bought it used I can't return it (it's still pretty cool-looking, though).

    I was going to try a B-17 or Brooks Pro to replace the Swift, but tried out the Selle An-Atomica at a bike show and *loved* it. It feels right out of the box like my Brooks Pro did after many, many miles of riding. Even though it's incredibly stupid to ride a new saddle on a long ride, I was so confident that I put it on my bike this Saturday, rode a few miles around the neighborhood with an Allen wrench getting the fit *just* right, and then took it on a pretty stiff 100km ride yesterday.

    For a variety of reasons, I've ended up with 6 saddles right now...the Selle An-Atomica is in a class by itself, but -- just to be clear -- I've only racked up one long ride on it. So, my opinion could change. Some folks think that the cutouts in the seat feel odd....you will note that the company recommends you wear "well padded" shorts on the saddle; I guess that's so you don't feel the edges of the cutout.

    My eyes! My eyes!

    . . . . . . . but I might want to try that saddle. My Fi'z'ik Aliente has about 20,000 miles on it.

    I like how the copy for the second saddle says the cut outs "provide imperceptible relief".

    I'm still not sure what I'm looking at, though. When I look at the saddle, it looks like a brooks. But in the video, especially the last clip, it looks like it's very wide at the nose.

    No, I don't think they are wide at the nose...check out their website.

    Actually, Rivendell has an interesting write-up on the Selle An-Atomica. Long back-and-forth about the benefits of Brooks vs. Selle An-Atomica...conclusion is that most people find the Selle An-Atomica more comfortable, but that for heavier riders who do lots of heavy duty riding, it might not last as long...

    I tried a Selle An-Atomica when I first got my Rivendell, but I found it to be too narrow for my wide sit bones and the nose was so long it caught on my shorts when I stopped at stoplights. I've now got a Brooks B-68 and both problems are solved.
