    ID This Saddle/Bike?

    Shopping for a bike to pick up in Berlin for a tour and have contact with someone selling an obscure "Mezorex X-Cross Laser XT"...or something like that. The components look fine for my purposes, but I'm having a time finding out much at all on the Mezorex (only a few, half-dead webpages), and despite being sold as a Brooks saddle..that sure don't look like a Brooks Flyer to me. Hence, my wonderment about the whole shooting match.

    Can anybody help me ID this thing, in particular the saddle? Has anyone ever, EVER heard of a Mezorex (and no, it's not an acne medication, at least I don't think so)?

    Thanks for any insights...

    The Saddle looks like a Brooks Conquest, same shape as a Team Pro, but with springs

    fks: Thanks, you appear to be absolutely correct. My knowledge of Brooks products is low and my ability to find that particular model zero. Now I see it (as attached).

    I'd bring my own seat from home (and peddles). Leather saddles form fit to a rider from new.

    I don't know how well/fast they can form fit again to another rider.
    mmmm coffeee!

    Camel:

    I agree. Both my saddle and pedals are in the duffel, now about 12 hours from heading off. I'll give the Brooks a ride or two and see how it feels. Never ridden on a leather saddle, outside of the very occasional horse ride.

    If you don't like the Conquest you can always post it to me

    fks: About 10 days into my trip, and the Brooks is working like a angel-charm-good bike saddle. Im never going back. My plastic "Liberator" has stayed in the panniers the whole trip. The Brooks is definitely making the trip back to the States with me.
