Ordered mine this weekend, got a pair of MTB shoes that retailed for $130 for a scant $39 as well. 10% coupon works too to save me another $5. Woohoo thanks for pointing it out.

I just ordered the Roayl with the sweet copper rivets... hopefully it won't be too discolored - but at $10 bucks it who cares?

Since it's a leather cover I wondering if it couldn't be dyed if it does turn out to look unsightly.

Got mine yesterday - NICE saddle in the box, sweet rivets. Slight cush factor, not rock hard. I'm buying 2 more.

Only slightly "yellow" - more like a bit of a tan. No issues!

Even cooler is the included marketing pamphlet - day glo saddles and frame bags from the 80's - a riot.

Well I just got mine and while I can't comment on the comfort yet I can on the condition. The yellow is barely there and seems to come off pretty easily. I may have to order another one of these things too. I also got my wife a pair of the Duegi shoes they have. Originally $130 on sale for $40. They fit great (my wife has big feet and we wear the same size) on my feet anyway and even the hedious color pattern they show on the site isn't too bad in person. The colors TRD got are better though. I may get a pair of those for myself as well.

Just got mine today - visually looks great. There are a few tiny bits of glue that brush off with just a finger nail - over all some yellow-ish tinge to the thing places. I haven't tried taking any sort of leather cleaner to it. If I had spent $70 bucks I wouldn't be happy but at $10 bucks it's an awesome deal. Havent riden it yet - prob. won't for a while, but it feels just a little bit cushy, there's maybe 1/8th inch of foam there, not rock hard at all. Very luxe - the copper rivets and rails are sweet. I'll order another if they still have them the next time I need something else.

Mine came on Monday and I love it. I may have to order another and change the color with some leather dye.
