saddle swap
 
This was suggested in the road forum and the mods agree that this
would be a good idea.
So, is that Selle Italia Flite more like a hatchet than a comfy seat?
Is your new Brooks B17 a Brick?

Post what you've got that you're willing to pass on.

Thanks Marty for getting this started. :)

Guess I'll kick this off with a feable attempt to pass on a spare saddle I don't need.

Have:
1) Vetta Anatomic - OEM on an early 80's Centurion. Had 'Centurion Anatomic' on the sides but I removed lettering w/ nail polish remover recently. Fairly heavy padding, great shape. Would make for a good commuter saddle.

2) Selle Italia Flite Gel Flow TransAm. Moderately used, purchased from the LBS as a take off a few months back. Ti rails, leather has many miles left in it. Looking for something slightly wider - highly prefer a cut-out design.

EDIT: Pictures coming soon. Searching/Google-ing for 'Selle Italia Flite Gel Flow' should return pics of that saddle. :)

Looking for:
1) For the Vetta saddle - let me know what you have. :)

2) For the Flite - Looking for something slightly wider - highly prefer a cut-out design. Specalized saddles currently high on my list.

I have:

Older Selle Italia Flite. Black perforated leather (?) cover, Ti rails. Very light, and pretty narrow - came off of a racing bike. Good condition with no rips or tears.

What I'm looking for:

More comfortable leather covered saddlr for riding centuries. Blue/blue trim and cut out a big plus.

I have a specialized body geometry alias 143 (md size I think). It was purchased about 3 or 4 months ago. Pretty good condition. No scuffs or tears. Markings on Ti rails are worn though. Only pic I have is on the bike:

You're in luck. I have one, except it's got white trim. Looks identical, and it's brand new. I took it off a Specalized Allez Comp a few years ago and it's been gethering dust ever since. I don't want such a small saddle (being 6'4") but if you can find a good home for the Alias, maybe we can arrange a three-person swap.

theshoemaker 01-04-06 09:40 PM

got:
new Bontrager race lux w/ black rails (came on my 06 Trek).
some old specialized mtb thing that somehow still feels good, but is a tad heavy.


looking to try out:

specialized alias or toupe 143
fizik arione
selle italia slr gel flow (cutout)


If I'm in luck please p.m. me :)

Basically anything for serious distance riding. Weight unimportant.

I am open to any trade...PM me with details

I have a Grey Fizik Aliante Sport that I'm willing to trade for a Brooks saddle that is new / lightly used. The Fizik Aliante has less than 5 hours on it, with no tears in the fabric. Came on my TCR2 and I want to try a Brooks

As I am eager to try a Brooks that has not been broken in (I would like to break it in).

I WILL PAY FREIGHT BOTH WAYS FOR THIS TRADE!!! (I will issue a pick-up tag and ship you my saddle)

Email: JSF252@hotmail.com

In advance.... I'm not really interested in any other saddles, so Brooks only, please.

Thanks,
Josh
