Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

I'll just try and think that wasn't worded to imply I had a crappy bike.

Just bought a second Rivet saddle for my single. The one on the single is headed for the tandem.

The Toupe looks about the same in shape, size, etc...just wondering why you're expecting a different result?

Diffrent padding, width, and shell. Plus I've had good luck with bontrager saddles in the past. Hope it works.
