    My new toy FIZIK Saddle

    HI ,
    Well my shopping adventures at BBay found me a pretty good deal on Fizik Saddle,
    it smells like leather too, not sure of the model it says Arione Tri K (something)
    it white and black like this one.



    The really neat thing I noticed today was how much easier it was to pedal fast, I actually was a little sore after my ride those groin muscles where alittle sore.
    Its great you can slide forward and Back and change your poisture more easily its pretty long.
    I seems I like the nose for mashing hard..
    Pretty nice saddle.

    I'm really suspicious of people who sniff bicycle seats.

    Yeah, I always feel a little suspicious when I'm adjusting the rear wheel, holding the back of the bike by the rear QR, pulling back the wheel, with my nose level with the saddle, while I check the wheel alignment between the chainstays.

    You only know if it's the right saddle after spending 8 to 10 hours on it. For many riders, it's a Brooks. For me, it's a San Marco Regal.

    Been pretty happy with my Arione. Bought an Antares recently but having touble getting it dialed in. Did a 60 mile ride and was fiddling with it the whole time.

    My experience with the Arione is that it feels good at first but does not suit me at all for longer rides. As everyone knows, there are individual differences and YMMV. I do not know how it smells.....

    There is a time to resign oneself
    to old age and infirmity. You first.

    Enjoy your new saddle. I have two, arione I and II. Both are great and allow much flexibility in body positioning during riding.

    Great saddle, and a great looking saddle too. I got a red and white one on my 85 Competition, and looking to get a white or white/black one (at a good price)like the one you got for my 96 Litespeed...
