Cardiff Mercia White

I found a nice looking all leather saddle.Cardiff Mercia White it looks pretty good to me wonder if anyone has one or if they know anything about this saddle.It's made like a Brooks B17 cost is about the same.I think it would look very nice on a Nashbar Touring bicycle with white bar tape and white cables Here is a pic of it.

Rivindel used to carry them but it looks like they stopped. I remember reading what they had to say about them and it was that they were just as comfortable as a Brooks but that they tend to sag a little sooner because of thinner leather material. They said that this issues was not severe and could be solved through tensioning and lacing if it occurred. They look nice to me!

I have found that "all white" looks grubby quickly and is difficult to clean.

had a cardiff saddle once. The quality was subpar compared to brooks.

white is a bad idea if you dont NEED it to be white, (in my experience).. ymmv
