Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

Heh I love that saddle.

I have one on my fixed and my road bike. Super comfortable.

Try it out and see if you like it.

I think it's sexy. IMO fifty times better than a Brooks any day of the week...

I can't do it. I won't even put it on my bike...not even the rainy day bike and I don't care if it is like riding on a cloud. I like a nice, hard saddle...the SLR (which I was going to order and love the look of and find comfortable) was out of stock so I ordered this without thinking or looking too much. Oh well...live and learn.

Anyone looking for a deal on a cherry SLK?

Watch out if you carry a bike with a fork shaped seat (like the SLK) backwards on a roof rack. Lennard Zinn got his saddle caught in a tree branch and tore the bike and part of the rack off his car.

Not all seats are for all people.

I still think you should give it a try yet I understand your love for the SLR. I use that one for my cyclocross bike. Different seats for different riding styles.

if you can pick it up in Brooklyn or Manhattan it is yours for the low price of $50. I just paid $75 on sale.
