Yes, and I can't say enough good thing's about it!
It doesn't feel at all like a 135 gram saddle

thanks
It's on sale at Performance for $65. I think retail is $89ish. I went in there because they have their Forte on sale for something like 17 bucks but they didn't have any with setback in stock. I *needed* to ride *today* so I ended up with this one as I didn't have time to run around!

Yep. I have the saddle positioned pretty well now. I think I need to tweak the tilt just a hair and all will be good!

Yep, definitely a bit of tilt up. I have it up just a bit too much though. A very small adjustment should be just right.

I have an easton EC90 coming... it was part of the build but it was back-ordered and is supposed to be in sometime this month.... the saddle on the look is SO bulky looking... I want one of those selle italia SLRs real bad.....

Yeah, if you needed it quickly, you're better off buying one like ya did... I don't have an exact time anyway How was your ride today?

i dig the clincher zipps, once they spin up they bike doesn't want to stop. i highly recommend them.
i've never ridden on tubbies before so this will be interesting. i don't even know how to glue tires to them...the lbs is gonna have to teach me this week.

That's funny, I'm kinda looking at building up a set of tubular wheels myself (or having it done since I'd break them).

Check these ones out - http://www.lewracing.com/ I'm considering building up a set with the rims they sell since I couldn't afford to buy the built ones they sell. I've held these wheels at the local shop and yes, they do weigh in at just about 900 grams for the set.

here's a tip about tubulars with hidden nipples, if the wheel becomes out of true you have to remove the tire and all the glue to re-true it. PITA.
are the spokes j-bend or straight-pull at the hubs?

I have no idea, I didn't pay too close attention, when they handed me the wheels and told me how much they cost and they weighed so little I didn't want to look at them too long, I was worried I'd break them somehow.

The guy who owns them asked if I wanted to try them.

"Um, no, they cost 5500 dollars."

"No worries, I got the no questioned asked replacement warranty for 4 years."

"Um, no, they cost 5500 dollars."
