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)

$30 Velo Saddle

Any one have any experience with these: http://cgi.ebay.com/NEW-196g-VELO-WH...%3D8%26ps%3D33

They seem pretty decent, and only $30 shipped. I've searched online, but can't really find any info on these. Apparently they're just Velo Ti saddles. Any help appreciated. Thanks.

I mean they SAY it's Velo, but who knows if it is actually since it is being sold on ebay. That's why I'm still hesitant. Has anybody purchased this specific saddle?

sure, it could be handcrafted from bear feces...


but i'd say the majority of saddles being sold for under 60 dollars are made by velo one way or another, so i'd imagine they're telling the truth.
