New saddle

Well bought a new saddle during the week and took it out today with the warm temps we had , near 70.
I got a Fizik Airone and it felt pretty good on the 29 miler I did. I will give it another go tomorrow and see how it goes. I think I am going to be a happy biker with this purchase.
Wish I could post a picture because it matches my bike pretty good. It is blue with a silver streak down the middle. Blue Cannondale with silver accents.

If it felt good first time out, and for 29 miles, it should only get better.

When I got my Airone, I put 30 miles on it the first day and 50 the next. I've got over 3000 miles on it and still love it. Good luck.

I've read good things about Fizik. I know I'll get the ride I paid for with the cheap Nashbar saddle I bought for a recent build.

On the other hand, I just bought a Persons saddle - essentially a B17 knockoff. It's antique brown with large copper rivets and copper rails. It'll go on my PX10. The leather is thick and the workmanship looks good.
