Road Cycling It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle. -- Ernest Hemingway

They had a SLR (vanox I believe) for $29.99 last week on Twitter. Got mine yesterday and rode it home..... Nice.

does the price of the saddle demo include the cost of one of the saddles, or is that just the cost to demo?

Thanks. I've been wanting to try one of these. It's a good enough deal to buy it and just sell it if I don't like it.

Love the twin from ProBikeKit (that's no longer sold.) Now I have a second for my other bike. Thanks!

I wish the SLR shape worked better for me.

The sides cut into me when I pedal...

They deduct the $75 from the cost of the saddle you choose.

So the SLR Gel I ordered Wednesday was waiting for me when I got home today. I'm going to have to forget Competitive Cyclist ships so fast.

When I opened the box, I thought "oh crap, this is going to hurt." Couldn't have been more wrong - I only had an hour to ride, but it felt great - zero numbness or pain. I can't wait to go on a longer ride to see if it stays that way. If so, I may order another for the trainer, or to just keep for later.

Pulled the trigger on the cut away deal. Not sure why I waited so long. Never thought I experienced any discomfort "down there" before. But, it made a world of difference on my first ride (40 mi). My have to adjust set up on stem a bit, as the seat seams a little shorter, but I am very happy with the purchase.

so..this saddle is easily the MOST COMFORTABLE roadbike saddle I'd ever ridden on. This has got to be the best deals I've gotten for my bike.

Funny, I bought it ($50, why not?), and found it to be a lot less comfortable than the SLR that I've been using.
Not complaining, though. For $50, it was definitely worth a shot. I can easily get the $50+shipping back on craigslist.

I got one too and have to say I really like it so far. I did a 4.5 hour continuous ride on Sunday and never felt discomfort.

It's still not as comfortable as my favorite WTB Rocket V, but it's close enough and looks much better on my bike

I may be swapping mine out, if anyone wants to try this one out. Seemed a lot better than my old saddle out the box, but now it is beginning to wear on me after that 30 mile mark. I tried adjusting the angle to redistribute pressure on my sit bones, but may be moving on.

I wish I could just HTFU already. Just sucks having to constantly adjust - and ultimately end the ride early b/c I can't sit down. Ugh.
