    selle italia storika saddle

    search the forums device is down so i apologize if this has already been posted.

    Im looking into getting a storika saddle and i do realize a saddle preference is up to the rider but im wondering if anyone has ridden this saddle and if so did they have any problems with the leather or rails or any other part of the saddle?

    Are you looking at the deal on Nashbar? I can't say anything about the saddle myself, and I've never seen one on any of the bikes I have ever seen posted here... I can't really compare the design to any similar saddles either since they are kind of oddball as far as saddles go. I always just figured they were for the looks. If you're comfortable on some other kind of design of saddle though I would probably stick to it as the storika is just weird.

    Might have better luck asking the Roadie forum. And they haven't had a new saddle thread in hours so, like they are so jonesing for one

    man I love how that saddle looks, but haven't ridden one yet. Tell me what you think after you buy it.

    it's a hot saddle, but it doesn't soften like a brooks does.
    it's ok if you don't plan on riding more than 20 miles at a time.

    i've got one. I never really got used to it though. it flexes a fair bit, so it is more comforatble than it looks. I don't think it fits my ass though.
    rode it on the track only so never really long distance.

    looks sweet though. PM me if you're up for a trade (looking for a brooks pro)
