More bikes, less composition. It is what we are here for.

I have been riding them for about six months...they are the most comfortable saddles I have ever ridden hands down. I have two of four road bikes equipped with them. Needing a couple more. I don't really want to ride my other bikes now.

Mist on the Tamagawa river at sunrise:



I started out early for a bike ride in the mountains with two friends. This was around 6:30 am and the temperature was only 4 C (39F). I love the pink morning light and the fog rising from the water.

Thanks. I have been hearing similar from others.

Where did you purchase? Which model? Hope you don't mind me pestering you.

I purchased my two N-Series direct from Infinitybikeseat.com. The N-Series is the uncovered version, it works great with a proper pair of bike shorts. It is very compliant and I do not notice the lack of padding on it.

I did have the opportunity to test ride the seat before buying because the fitter at the shop where I work is a rep. Check with Infinity, maybe there is a rep near you. They do allow returns but with a restocking fee, last I checked.

If you have any more questions, feel free to shoot me a PM. I am always happy to discuss this saddle because I believe it can make a big difference for alot of folks.

As with anything, it may not work for everyone but don't dismiss it because it looks funny or doesn't jive with traditional saddle design concepts. I was very skeptical myself but, for me, the proof is in the ride.

love it!

I also enjoy using a long lens to compress the scene. Maybe because it provides the same perspective as when I'm out riding, always looking down the road at what's far ahead??

Here's a shot from June of this year, on a bike ride south of Dubuque, Iowa, where there are a lot of rolling hills.

Thanks again. Your comments are right in line with the reviews I've read.

I would definitely like to test ride one.
