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)

Stylish to the max white saddle?

What's Up. I want to buy a new saddle for my fixie. I currently have a brooks B-17 and love it indeed, but it's time for some change. Anyone know of a stylish to the max, comfortable for long rides, WHITE leather saddle I can purchase.

The B-17 is practically brand new. It's about 50 miles old. I love it. It's stylish and comfy without padded shorts, even on long rides. I know it's suppose to contour to the shape of your bum, so the comfort should increase. I am building a second bike and wanted a white seat. The B-17 will get lots of use also.

Bicycle Express in St. Petersburg, FL has cases of NOS White Leather Turbo saddles. He will tell you $140, but my buddy got him down to $60, or $65 and then you'd have to convince him to ship it to you. They're new in the box. Shipping if he's fair should be no more than $15 w/c adds in $5 for "handling."

I don't know where else, except Ebay you'd find one and they're not always on Ebay.

Not if they're priced like the current Swallows.

Definitely the Regal. My friend has one on his NYCBike and has white bar tape. It is crazy stylish. I want one super bad.

Is there anyway to protect the white leather? That's the only thing keeping me from getting one. I'd like mine to stay bright white for a long, long time. Perhaps proofide?

That Regal is exactly what I was thinking when I saw this. Extra points if you find a perforated one.

Specialized Toupee'. It goes for about $160. I've never personally ridden on one but have a very similar one on my bike and love it. I'm buying it soon just because of the color.

I've heard nothing but good things about it as well.

Edit: Nevermind, this is nothing of what you're looking for. My bad.

Selle SLR and SLR XP (more padding) come in white and are as stylish as it gets.
Comfort is questionable. If you like firm saddles one of the two could be for you.

If you like the skinny modern racey look, that is.

Just so you know, richardsachs.com has those Regals in red, white, or blue for $90. What a helpful first post.
