    Lepper Bicycle saddles are junk stay with Brooks!

    I just got a used Lepper 65 Sprung saddle from ebay, it was said to be new but was clearly used. The springs and hardware are very cheap unreliable junk. Harris Cyclery stopped selling them for that reason and I was hoping I got a good saddle because it was cheaper than brooks. Bottom line stay with Brooks leather, don't even bother with the dope smoking holland saddles from Lepper. They are junk. Absolute crap. I am so angry I could throw the damn thing away but I am hoping the seller will refund my money. I doubt it but its worth a shot. Next saddle is going to be a brooks B17

    Agreed. You better take a long hot bath after having sat on it, or we'll have to send off to the colony.

    If body parts are gonna be dropping off, I'd prefer that they're not the ones that contact the saddle.
