I gotta find this P I M P thing for my bike

Actually my daughter suggested it. In yakking with her (she's 9, cool headed and smart.. unlike her dad) about how to finish off my newish bike, she said to get a gold seat for the bike. And I agreed! That'd be... a good cap.











Question is, where can I find a gold color saddle?

Hu elp!

i got one from nashbar...

william-

the schwinn saddles were on clearance a few weeks ago at nashbar - i think i may have picked up one of the last ones they had for my fixie, cuz i noticed that a few days after i got mine, nashbar didn't have them listed anymore.

there's a guy that sells the same saddle on ebay, though...he's got two of 'em up right now:

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...category=22693

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...category=22693

i like the saddle - it's a good mix of old school flare and new school attitude...

good luck!

-Steve

Yup, that was me! Unfortunately, the saddle is now off my road bike, as I just couldn't justify the harsh ride on my behind. However, it doesn't get any more PIMP than having a pin-up gal on your saddle. I'm now planning on mounting it on the wall. It's WAY to cool to end up on a shelf or in a drawer!
