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)

SLR, as that's the closest choice to my favorite, the Performance Forté Pro SLX.

I have a Flite on the Eddy, a Rolls on the Vitus, and Avatars on the Catamount and Colnago. They're all great, as far as I'm concerned.

you cant get the quality of brooks with any of the other saddles(what other saddle will be a custom fit?). yea it takes a lil maint. but in the long run you will save $ because the brooks will outlive all the others and you wont have to buy anything else.

Specialized, custom widths for different sit-bone widths, and doesn't cram a bunch of leather up your taint.

I rode on a cheap Fuji saddle for like a year. Sucked so bad.

The stock one that comes with the concept is alright, but still hurts.

The turbo is awesome. But it might be a little too old because its starting to feel rough.

The Selle Italia Expedia is pretty sweet. Took it for a 30 mile ride the other day without bike shorts on, and it didn't hurt too bad.

I really want to try the Concord. I've heard bad and good things.

Favorite saddle to date is a stripped-to-the-plastic Flite. I've got two.

But, I've got two Regal's on order. I'm hoping these will be the new fave.

I recently sold my Brooks Swift to fund the new saddles. 'Leather up your taint' indeed.

Alias's on both bikes. Don't really need it on the fixed since it doesn't go much further than 30 miles in one ride but it looks nice. On the roadie 100+ miles on an Alias is cake.
