Toupe is great for me on a bike with a good saddle to bar drop, and if I'm riding hard. If it's a touring kind of bike and ride, I much prefer a Brooks.

The Toupe 143 has been anointed by His Holiness Pope Pcad I.

The cervelo site had some really great info. Thanks for the tip.

picked up a specialized avatar comp gel today. the folks at the shop were pretty helpful. i took it out for 10 miles tonight and was happy with it. time/miles will tell the whole story, though.

i figure i'll give it a go and if i just can't stand it after a few weeks i'll unload it on ebay and pick up something else.
