I randomly found this last night-

anyone know of another site that has them (not ebay) in leather for around this price?

The concor was re-issued. So this is possibly stock of the re-issue.

edit: better links

off topic and i'm sorry that this doesn't help you at all, but i just found a month or so ago a new old stock profil concor that i'm pretty excited about having on my faggin.

on topic, seems like a pretty fair price for a reissue, but if you stick it out and be patient i'm sure a better deal will come along on ebay or craigslist.

if you wait for them to get back in stock, PBK has it for cheaper ~40 USD if I recall correctly

just checked, its about 47-53 depending on which one, but they are not suede

so, if you are set on suede get it, if not, I'd wait for PBK to restock

^

I don't really want a suede one, rather a leather one (I already have a selle sprint saddle in suede)

but aren't the ones you posted from probikekit different than the "classic" concor saddle remake that I posted?

they dont dip down low enough like the classic one-
