Turbo Saddle/Saddle question
 
Right now im using a San Marco Ods saddle which looks good but really hurts. I like the looks of the Selle Italia Turbo saddles, but they're pretty expensive. Does anyone know where to get one similar for less money? I woul like black, white or anything really, i've searched and can't find anything. So if anyone has any ideas on where to get one for cheap or an alternative that would be great. Also any other saddle ideas/saddles you guys ride that i might like as well. Thanks

keep checking ebay. ive come across multiple black turbos in the 20-50 dollar range.

im watching a few right now but i just have this feeling they'll do what i've seen them do, jump at the last second to $70ish. I really would like one for $50 or less ideally less

just keep looking. sometimes you just get lucky. but watch for auctions that end late, like around 3-4 in the morning. a friend of mine won a yellow perforated turbo special? i believe for around 30 bucks.

dang thats such a good deal. I am willing to stay up into the weeee hours for one definately.

Love the Turbo, had one in Celeste in the early 90s. Wish I still had it! There was a white perf one in a shop that I used to ogle but could never afford.

Remember that saddles are very personal. You might want to ride a friends bike with one first.

That said, I have one on both my bikes... i DO like them :)

Gee, didn't realize the Turbo was such a hot commodity these days. I've got at least half a dozen of them tossed in the parts box, yellow, white, brown, black. Think one is a nice Bernard Hinault special edition.

Guess I should throw one or two up on eBay.
