I have one of those. It sagged quickly, but tightened up nicely, with adjustment.

It had this Selle Anatomica Titanico on it, which is a little bit of a head scratcher to me. The leather looks great, especially the underside. But it also has a little bit of sag in the middle that indicates use to me. I'm also not familiar enough with these to know really.

Anyway! I'd like to get $90 shipped for it. Feel free to reach out with any questions.

My X series saddles are fantastically comfortable. I recommend giving it a shot before selling.
FWIW, SA's directions for the newer series saddle is too adjust the tension until the narrowest part of the slot will permit a 6 mm hex wrench to pass through.

Been thinking more about giving this type of saddle a shot. Selle website is pretty specific about rider weight limits across the 3 models of this saddle. Don’t know if this is related to comfort or potential failure. Any idea if this saddle is T , X or H?

Hey there! So did some diggin on web.archive. Best I can tell, it's a roughly 2011 saddle, which had a specific model for folks under 140 lbs and the main one for everyone else. This appears to be the normal model. I've attached a link below.

I also know the previous owner was very tall, like 6'-6". Seems fair to guess he'd be a heavier guy.

Looks like there is no tension on it, It needs some! We have 13 of these between the two of the us and the older ones like this are definitely the most comfortable!

Yeah, that slot is supposed to be 6 mm at its narrow point.

Thank you guys, you're 100% correct. Just backed the tension bolt out and the shape looks much better. Have an old motobecane I might toss it on to try, can't say I'm not curious.
