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)

It is very comfortable for now. I only had time to ride it around the neighborhood but I can feel that it's a lot more supportive. I'll let you know how comfortable it is after I go for a longer ride. It was a replacement for some old unknown saddle that came on my vintage road bike.

How did you manage to get it? Live in the UK? I've been curious how to order Charge stuff from the US.

If it's anything like the Charge Spoon, it's a very comfortable saddle.

two weeks? ouch. I ordered a few things from wiggle over the winter and the package arrived in 6-7 days, just the same as ordering from pbk.
