Don't have any pics handy, but the common ground for the death of saddles for me is that they're all kind of that "Flite" design where the nose is vertically thin. This means the leather on the sides of the nose wraps around an edge rather than falling down a face and wrapping around the bottom. They just abrade on that eased edge on the side of the tip. My chamois stitching does the rubbing right there.
Fenders are almost on the way, actually. I'm going to get some of those Crud RoadRacers, but I need to pick which shady UK dealer to buy them from. Won't be available in the US until mid-November.
