I flipped my bike...so the pavement ate it...I had to wait 30 minutes for a ride so I found a chair and put it so I could sit down in the shade and see my bike

If I'd had to guess, I'd say the scratches were causes by spoke shrapnel.

BUT... If it happened in your hemisphere the scratches would spiral the other way !!

Scrapped it. I'll look into something else when something catches my eye, in the mean time...I'm just chillin' with the Kona.

I thought the same thing. Something right out of a Rene Magritte painting. You could call it, "This is not a chair."

How does that saddle work for you? It looks as though it would be pretty comfortable.

I'm a big guy and it's super comfortable. Anything wider tends to irritate my inner thighs though I've never taken any other saddle on long rides i.e. 3 hours. It offers plenty of cushion and can be had for 30 bucks or so on ebay

I posted a review of it somewhere...but anyways I love it, good price, long battery life, more light than you'll ever need. The only downfall it had was no helmet mount, but cygolite recently released one
