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)

Colored Saddle for my vintage and my Junk

Anyone got a recommendation on a comfortable yet affordable saddle possibly offered in a variety of colors? No im not considering a seat cover.

sorry about that...i really do need to finish reading threads before i post

edit: selle anatomica's are a bit pricey, and its hard to find a legitimate comfortable and colored saddle that is cheap, so warning: you may have to spend a lil bit of cash to get what you want. i found a cool feature on the fizik site that allows you to customize certain seats with the colors you want

Nashbar sells a dead ringer for the fiziks, I got a nice black and white one with Ti rails for like $30. I ride fiziks and this one was exactly the same. I think the current models are red and black.
