Its the unbelievable amount of wear the saddle has on it that irritates me. He never stated that there was more than 40 miles on the saddle. The description clearly leads one to believe that there are only 40 miles on it. It has to have several thousand miles on it in the shape it is in.

    Hey, I'm not trying to whine because in the big scheme of things it really means nothing, I'm just asking whether or not you folks would feel the saddle was misrepresented or not.
    I'd gt some nail polish remover, get rid of the paint, fit it up to your bike, add a lick or two of Proofide or your polish of choice, and get riding on it. It looks entirely rideable to me.

    Wringing your hands otherwise is a pointless exercise.
    Dream. Dare. Do.

    I don't use that site and make no representations about their business. Speaking generally I'd say you gambled on a used saddle and lost. If it was me, I'd charge-back the payment as misrepresented and ask the seller how he wants it shipped back, since he's going to pay for it.

    I agree. I wouldn't eat that!
