Selle San Marco Rolls Saddle

Just bought this saddle from total cycling. It cost 45$+15$ shipping so it was about 60$. Anyone ride this saddle?

I don't get why you asked if anyone rode one in your OP.

it's a fine saddle, i like it

saddles are subjective, a lot of people will like them, a lot of people will hate them

ride whatever is comfortable

I ride the cheapest San Marco saddle on nashbar.com.. it was $14.95 I think. It works fine for me, looks / rides pretty good, I actually had a thread on here cause I had no idea how to put it on.

I have a black rolls, it's a fine saddle. It's not currently on any of my bikes but I have used it alot in the past for a temporary saddle. On some bike setups it looks perfect atmo.

alot of rolls hatin' in this thread.

I've shopped around lately for a new one and the cheapest i've found is 60 shipped on ebay.

anybody got anything cheaper with shipping included? i know europeon online sites have em for like 30 but the shipping kills you.

Liking my Rolls so far. Been on it for about a month. Picked it up from PBK for $35US w/ free shipping. Sold out right now, so its kind of a moot point, but they do tend to restock every now and then.
