Charge Spoon Saddles?

I want to order a Charge Spoon saddle, but everywhere I look online, they're sold out. I'm referring to the white syn leahter/ cro-mo rail types, not the titatanim rails. Does anyone know where else I can order these? Thanks.

the cro-mo rails are always sold out, the most popular place WAS wiggle

It comes up on ebay once in a while but it's not reliable. I myself asked some riders in the UK and got someone to sell me a used one which is being shipped now. That would be your best bet imo

Thanks guys, I checked both Wiggle and Evanscycles and they both are out, and plus they cost more, being for Europe/shipping. The lowest retail I could find was $22-29 elsewhere, whereas both the British retailers total around 28 Euro/$38, which is a pretty big gap from <$30. Do you guys have any other suggestions? That would help a lot, thanks.

your chances of getting it for under $30 is pretty impossible, I spent $40 on mine which was used for 2 weeks

Worth it for such a nice saddle imo

I bought a brand new one from Airbomb (Beyond Bikes) earlier this year for under $40 shipped. Not sure on their current inventory, though.

I believe Universal Cycles carries Charge goods now. Not sure if anything is in stock yet.

I heard such bad reviews from airbomb, did your transaction go smoothly?

I've ordered from Airbomb multiple times and the transaction involved little in the way of communication, but no complaints to be made. Huge selection, good prices, etc.

Airbomb has the titanium spoons "backordered", which I'm assuming means that they're out of stock and ordering them. So if I do order now, based on most people's feedback about Airbomb, I'll probably receive it in like 2 months or more. Which is fine I guess, if that's the only option left now.

I'm not quite sure, but it got lots good reviews everywhere and is always sold out. I'm just looking for a white, budget, decent saddle (comfort, look). Do you have any suggestions?

It's a great saddle because it's very comfortable, priced low, and comes in a range of colors and choice of cro-mo or ti rails. Basically it's a good saddle and presents a good value. Is it something "special?" No...it's a saddle for those of us that don't want/need a $150 Fizik.

As far as Airbomb, they definitely suck when it comes to communication. It took almost 2 weeks to get my seat, while getting the runaround from them. They responded to emails, but kept giving flimsy excuses. I got it and am happy with the product, so it's whatever. Recently I just dropped $300 for a bunch of DH armor, helmet, gloves, etc... and went with Universal Cycles instead. They matched Airbomb's prices and then had a discount on top of that. They ship crazy fast too, so Universal ftw!

I ordered a white one from Wiggle and am still waiting (good cust. service, they were out of stock). I got impatient and got a Soma Ensho from Universal. From the pics I think the Spoon looks better, but I've been happy with the Ensho.
