My new fav saddle?

Selle TRK.

Me likey. New, about $75 shipped off Ebay. I'm not quite a clyde anymore, but if you dig padded, wider, cut-out saddles, I'd recommend checking this one out.

I haven't thrown out the old saddle quite yet (Avatar), but I think it's on it's way to Ebay...

I rode on one of those for a few rides. They were very comfortable for the first 30 miles or so, but then I was getting numb toes. They have some models that are slightly more narrow, but the same design, and less padding. They are more expensive, but I am probably going to be springing for one here for the main road bike this year.

I think I am going to cut the big "Selle SMP" billboard off the back of mine. That emblem is a tad gaudy, but otherwise, I'm diggin' the saddle.

If you find the right one after only three tries, you're lucky.
