Finally, an Avocet Racing RIII. This is very similar to the Selle Italia Turbo, but has aluminum rails for weight-weenie goodness. 293g versus 364g for the Turbo. As before, willing to consider trades for Brooks Professional or B17 "standard," Idéale mod. 90 or 92. US$40 shipped continental USA:

Not sure why the pictures aren't showing. I've edited all the previous posts to include the images as attachments. Never had to do that before. And one I forgot to include earlier, Brooks B72. US$35 shipped continental USA.

Ok. This is weird. Something in the Bike Forums vBulletin software is preventing my pictures from showing up. If I edit one of the posts above, and go to "Preview Changes," all the images show up. But when I save the edited messages, they all disappear again.

When I edit a message, my "img" tags have all been changed to "src" tags. WTF is going on?

No, I went back and edited all the posts and changed the remote image tags to attachments.

Still not sure why I had to do that…

The B17 narrow is my most favorite saddle..... I would happily trade it for a Team Pro, but that is not offered. Not to mention that I have no way to actually do the trade. Shipping.

Like the Turbo, it's thin leather over padding, attached to a plastic shell. I didn't find it as comfortable as the mod. 90 or 92, but saddle comfort is a subjective judgement.
