    Short version, no I'm riding a WTB Devo saddle which works well for me.

    Long version, my SL4 Expert frame was a warranty replacement for an SL2 which came with a Toupe saddle (which I hated.) I did try a 155mm Romin last year but didn't care for it and ended up returning it.

    The Romin is a great saddle, in the right conditions. For me, it takes enough saddle to bar drop to roll your hips nicely. I initially had it on a bike with very little bar drop, and hated it, but once I set it up with a more aggressive fit, it has become my standard saddle of choice. You will find folks like me that swear by them, and others that swear at them.

    If it doesn't work out, and you want to sell it, PM me.

    Hell, I don't know. I've put ~200 on it in the last week alone, so maybe it's more. But see, our winters are very wet. I was riding my other bikes a lot of the time this winter. And a rental bike for 2 week in SoCal in December.

    The other thing is that I've (maybe) decided that I'd rather ride a very difficult 35 miles than an easier 60 miles. So my mileage is down but I'm getting, I think, a better workout.

    As to the saddle, I'm still trying to decide. My ass is getting used to it, but after a couple hours I'd be lying if I said I was still really "comfortable" on it.
