    Tastes like chicken?

    One of the nice things about building a bike is finding just the right parts so the bike will work exactly the way you want. It took me a long time to find the out of production saddle that is not too heavy and I can literally ride it for an entire day. I already has a couple, I needed another one to finish off my Litespeed Pisgah. I looked in ebay, on line, in bike shops, and finally, a swap meet.

    When my daughter moved back home, I said she could bring her friends cat along with her own cat. That's a total now of three cats and a dog. Her friend had to move home too and her parents said no cats allowed. My daughter and her friend did not have the front claws removed like the cat that has lived here for 15 years already.

    My out of production, real leather, ti rails, lightweight, comfortable, like new, Serfas seat was shredded by her friends cat last night.

    I hear cats taste like chicken. Do you twist or bend the neck, or both? Should I wear gloves? What about the microwave? Maybe cat food with Chinese wheat gluten?

    Should've had a Brooks. It would take a mountain lion to shred one of those suckers.

    My condolences on the loss of your saddle.

    Gloves are a must. Twist--a spinning motion over the head, a maniacal laugh at this point speeds the process. No microwave, slow cook.

    Sorry for your loss.

    I can't say because I've never to my knowledge eaten cat. I have eaten a fair amount of sweet and sour chicken, however, so who knows?

    The Brooks would be so hard that once she put her hand on it she would not even be attracted to it anymore.

    And what was poor Bailey doing? Being out numbered I suspect he may have had to retreat to the safety of his bike basket. I think a fur covered saddle would be very nice on a cold winter's day

    Actually, my dad claimed to have tried cat at some point in the Navy. I'll never know if he was really telling the truth, but he did not recommend it. I'm sorry to hear about your saddle. I got a bad feeling about cats and leather saddles when my little monster destroyed the box my Brooks came in. I've had her for 8 years, and she'd never done such a thing before. She was also extremely interested in the saddle while I was proofiding it before I put it on the bike.

    Perhaps there ought to be a warning about cats on the boxes they come in.

    They do, as do Brooks saddles.

    I saw a thing on TV where they showed a market somewhere in China. They showed people weighing pieces of cat on a scale.

    The moslems think we're bad news for eating pork.

    To each his own, I always say.

    Hey.......... I hear cat skin makes great bike saddles.

    BTW I don't hate cats. I have one of my own. I keep her around in case some day I need a sandwich.

    And he's the lone male against three females. I feel bad for him.

    I think there is something about leather and some animals. Dogs and cats can go for shoes and slippers. There was a gel saddle with a lycra type cover right there too and the cat had no interest in it.

    I have learned that the soft leather on bike gloves feels and smells just like a leather bone that a dog has softened with saliva and been chewing on. So far I have warned everyone at the bike shop that takes their bike gloves off (Bailey hangs around inside bike shops a lot). So far I have put my gloves up high on the kitchen counter. So far........

    At least the bike shops Bailey likes sell really nice gel gloves.

    I keep my bike in a shed in the yard. This is also where the cat population seems to live. My Brooks has a set of 10 claw scratches where it looks like a cat tried to jump up on it and couldn't stay on that slick sucker. (it also has some dings from a few rider error incidents)

    To a cat, all bikes in the house belong to them. My own cat scent marks them every chance she gets. If you go destroying all the saddles that "belong" to the cat, you're going to have some really interesting bike rides.

    This cat owns everything including what Bailey thought was his.

    Including his house.

    I had a "Davy Crocket" hat as a kid. It had fur all around and a racoon tail I think.

    My new one will be "calico".
