Got it.

The pictures have relatively nothing to do with a saddle.

I took from this thread that orange saddles are the best. What did you take from this thread?

That bike is a fantastic mishmash of fugliness in technicolor.

Just wait until you see the Fuji track bike I picked up. It's hideous, but will get me in the door at Carson to ride some smooth wooden banks really fast.

Save for some extra grams, I never had issues with the old BigBoy . The fat saddle was a rave with downhillers in the 90s. The other was Tioga's Multi Control DH - which someone dubbed 'The Sofa'.

I've had two Fi'zi:k saddles on my mtb. The Aliante and the Gobi. They are both nice saddles.

Something tells me that many who have posted here have not actually read the first few posts in this thread.
