    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.

    What are they doing? Why do they come here? Some kind of instinct. Memory, of what they used to do. This was an important place in their lives.

    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.

    i was about to WTF you b/c i thought you were talking about the FSA SLK, which i ride, and i was about to feel really uncool and start a thread that was all like, "so, like, are people who ride FSA SLKs uncool?" and then check every fifteen minutes through 6 pages of madness.

    the hipster myth.

    i practice vagabondery.
