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)

Light Tan Saddles

I searched on here as well on the net. Are there any light tan(not Brooks tan/brown, but lighter) saddles that are preferably leather. Synthetic is okay, but I am just looking for a light tan. Any suggestions?

Not sure if this is too dark for your tastes, but here's the Origin8 saddle I picked up recently.

You should also take a look at the Selle Italia Storika. They no longer make it but to me this was one of the sexiest saddles ever produced.

I have looked at these in person and they look good, but nobody seems to know much about them.

I just got my Charge Spoon in today, and it's very very very close in color to my Origin8 saddle.
