    Reputable Selle SMP dealers in NJ

    Hi,

    I am looking to upgrade my saddle on my road bike to a Selle SMP saddle. Can someone please recommend a reputable Selle SMP dealer in NJ, preferably from personal experience, who could help me pick out a right saddle? I live in Jersey City and the distance is not an issue. I am just looking for the LBS that sells the SMPs with good service that would take time to size the saddle based on how I ride and fit it appropriately on my bike.

    Many thanks in advance.

    I know this guy who sells them out of the back of his van under the overpass. He's legit and his prices super low.

    I don't know about his BF name, but he goes by Jimmy "knuckles" Rigatoni.

    Wow, not only am I interested in finding a SMP dealer in NJ, I live in Jersey City as well. I can tell you that even though Strictly says they're a SMP dealer when I went there they didn't have any and steered me towards a Specialized Romin. Buying that saddle was a big mistake.

    I ran into a guy on a ride a couple of weeks ago (who did not have an SMP) that said R&A in Brooklyn has a set up with various models and sizes so you can actually sit on them and get a feel for them. I've yet to go out there so I can't confirm or deny his statement.

    I actually just picked up a Romin Evo and finally got the position dialed in on yesterday's ride. I'm pleased with it so far.

    My father's side of the family came over on the boat. As such, I am extremely offended my that remark. I am so offended that I am going to start a rant on the A&S forum about how cyclists on the 41 are ethnicists.

    Whoa. And it gets even weirder. I am going to be riding through Jersey City on Sunday on my way to Brooklyn.

    I lost some weight recently and I am no longer happy with the fit. Less cushion (on me) makes a so-so fit less than so-so now.

    Start it here so I can read it. I don't venture over to A&S.

    I go there every once in a while to remind myself of how much more well adjusted I am than many others.

    Didn't expect that a simple question could provoke so many distasteful comments. For those looking for a place to be sarcastic, please don't flood this thread with garbage and let normal people respond.

    Well you're quite humorless.

    I bought my SMP Glider through eBay from a bike shop in France.
    Seriously.

    Hi,

    OP, try Tenefly Bicycle Workshop:

    Tenafly Bicycle Workshop

    They wrote me back saying they had demos of many of the models and saddles in stock. I'm going to visit next week. I'll let you know how it goes.
