    That's fine, i'll try it and told y'all that this one is worth money or not in 1-2 months.

    I've never heard of them before, and since no one's replied in the 4 3/4 years since the original posting I'm guessing a lot of other people haven't either.

    I just looked on Amazon and they have them for sale at $97.90 (when I looked). No reviews. At that price I think I'll stay with the known Brooks rather than an unknown saddle from Taiwan.

    At that price, I'll stick with Brooks. Even if that saddle was only 50 bucks, I'd still stick with Brooks. I may have to put a lesser saddle on a new bike for a few weeks, but it is worth it for something that is known to be high quality with good customer service.
