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)

I have the same problem with dry denim on a bianchi celeste saddle. I rode it the other day with thin black shorts that I sweated right through and the sweat and ass friction rubbed the indigo dye right off.

try softscrub with bleach and use a scrubbing sponge or something with a little bit of abrasive grit. it cleaned my white saddle up a bit, but i still can't get all the discoloration out - it's been too long.

i an old yellow on a bike that's turned green from the blue dye in jeans.
