    Celeste Saddle?

    Anyone got a hookup for a celeste saddle for my Bianchi?

    Bianchi's online store has a couple but they're a bit steep.

    Anyone know of a good saddle for fixed gear riding that wont set me back too much and comes in celeste?

    I have the celeste saddle that came on the 2001 Pista. I only used it a few times and I'll sell it to you for $30.

    Pictures in a second.

    Scratch that price. $20 + shipping and it's yours.

    Note: it is not a selle italia saddle, the is just the box I've been storing it in. I will also ship it in this box.

    I just threw mine out. It was really uncomfortable. Not nearly as nice looking as $0.00's is...

    OK, Gareth. I just got back from the Post Office. I sent the saddle priority mail, so you should have it by Tuesday at the latest. Postage cost me $5.40.

    Drop a five in a Salvation Army kettle, or in the coffee can on the counter of a convenience store for your local animal shelter, or to benefit someone with cancer...something like that...and we're even.

    I hope the saddle is what you want.

    Man, I'd love to have one that color

    Any leather experts know if you can bleach the color out of say a honey brooks and re-dye it another color?

    There is a "British Racing Green" Brooks available - it doesn't look too bad, in fact it looks quite fetching when put on a Celeste frame…

    celeste saddle(bianchi)

    Hi,

    Am new here, so i apologize if i have posted in wrong forum, etc.

    I, too, am looking to buy a celeste-coloured Bianchi saddle,or facsimile, for my single speed project bike. The Bianchi website is steep, so I am willing to purchase used.

    many thanks,

    cv2_r
