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)

Any thoughts on the Charge Knife ?

I'm still a few weeks out from riding my FG again due to my hernia surgery, but I'm thinking ahead about what I can buy to replace my supremely uncomfortable Tioga Spyder saddle on my Leader. I want something lightweight and relatively narrow like the Tioga, but with some padding, and was thinking that the Charge Knife might work. Unfortunately, no one seems to have one to try out, and I'll have to buy it online from the UK. Have any of y'all ridden on this saddle, and if so, how did you like it. Thanks - TT.

I'm in north Texas, but thanks for the offer. So, have you ridden it much ? I want to be able to do 50+ mile rides on it, nonstop.

I'm pretty sure treefort bikes carries the Charge saddles. They were in the last catalog I got from them a few months back. They are in Michigan I believe

Thanks for the suggestion. Unfortunately, they are out of stock and don't have an estimated restock date. The same is the case with everyone else in the US that I could find that normally carries them. It's somewhat of a moot point now, as I just ordered a Wabi Lightning, and expect it to now replace the Leader as my long distance lightweight ride.
