    could you give me the details on colorlife? price, turn-around time, bike friendlyness, etc. my local powdercoater went belly up. looks good to me.

    thanks guys, she's excited she wants to ride she waiting for the weather to warm up just a bit.
    i choose the saddle because i am personally a fan of sella italia saddles, i'm running one on my IRO and on one of my mtbikes. i saw some interbike photos of it and i had to get it for her.i really hope it works out it wasn't cheap.
    the size is 50. i think im gonna swap out the stem for a slightly shorter one w/less of an angle .

    colorlife is in Lond island . exit 41 on the LIE.its off of rt 107, 131 engineers drive .but double check that adress w/him. the owner is john he was very easy to deal with and bike friendly. give em a call (tel) 516-433-1222. you could probaly ship it out to him also.turn around time was one week. initally the fiinsh was orange peeled on chainstays . i called colorlife and brought it back to them and they did the right thing and fixed it in 3 days.its super smooth now. they use dupont powdercoat and it's supposed to be very durable.

    Nice ride. Love the saddle. Very urban, like that LV/Coach wear that the "kids" wear. HA!

    they are 170mm. i'm running the same cranks on my iro as well but in black. i'm guessing they are aluminum.
