I don't have any pics, and my schools connection is too slow right now to download any from the web, so Siu please post that pic you found.
Ahhhhh... the information you will find in foo, sorry Siu.

Two comments. First I don't care how light a saddle is if it is not comfortable then it's not worth it. Second, that's not even all that light.

It's weight isn't too bad for the price though.

well, my old saddle was about 430gs (laser v). As far as railed saddles go, it was one of the lightest I could find, and it happened to be on sale. Also, as a DHer/FRer, I spend very little time in the saddle. Its only there to protect from butt punctures of a botched jump or something

Check out price point though, they have some great deals.

ps, I have my old saddle if you want to by it. Its soft and in pretty good shape.

Well, compared ot 430 grams I would have to agree, your new saddle is extremely light!

Head to your local shops. Try and sit on whatever seats they happen to have on bikes, get what feels comfy. Maybe ask around with the gals in the emptybeer womens forum.

I've recently swapped over to a WTB something or other, and a SDG Bel Air on my two mtbs. Far more comfortable than the lightweight buttfloss asshatchet seats I'd been running.

Much nicer being a reformed weight weenie.

+1 on the WTB something or other.
I have one on my hardtail that has served me well and ordered another for my new build.

Posting a goofy question to some random teenie bopper is the least likely way to solve her alleged dilemma.

I wouldn't expect you to come anywhere near understanding these simple concepts, given your intense poseurdom but it does make for an amusing read.

I love reading your post. Continue on good sir.

I was looking at a $80 race seat, its what was recommended from my race teammates. Its not like I just randomly picked out a expensive saddle, which is what you must have the impression of.

If believing that fantasy makes you feel all warm and fuzzy, that's great.
1. Your point is very good, I did not see it that way.
2. Yes, it does make me feel warm and fuzzy, thanks for asking.

I don't quite understand the whole Brooks saddle thing.
(bear in mind this is my opinion)

1. Sooooo ugly
2. they look heavy (I've never found a site with the weight)
3. they look very uncomfortable in the perineal area
4. they're so expensive...like sometimes over $350
