Cobb Saddle Deal

These are $200 saddles being sold for $20. I ordered a few. They are new without the box, and they are the real deal. They shipped immediately. I did a 30 mile ride on one and was pleased with it. We'll need to grow on each other, but I can tell it's going to work well. Paying through GoodWill is NOT secure. I used the PayPal option.

Thanks for the heads up. I was just looking for some less expensive saddle options.

I have three rides of 30 plus miles on mine, and I think this is going to be a thumbs up. Each ride finds us meshing a little bit better. How about the rest of you?

I picked up 5: 3 Randee's, and two of the v-flow's. I got the randees for friends(too narrow for me) and one liked it and kept it. He also picked up another model from the deal and liked/kept it. Another person tried tried a randee and was a no-go(too wide for him). My GF tried a randee on her mtn bike..nope(too wide)..so I have two randee's I'll need to sell at some point. The two v-flows went on my GF's road bikes..two thumbs up and smiles in both cases.

Looks like GW still has them..most are in auction mode, but still a great deal.

Randee didn't work at all - its width is not decreasing fast enough for me from its back to its nose, so it ends up rubbing (or, I'd even say - hitting) the inside of the thighs. San Remo seems to be pretty good for me. Wife is testing V Flow and it seems to work okay for her so far...

I only picked up the Randee and have a few hundred miles on it, but only one or two ~50 mile rides with gym shorts and it worked for those. I did put my old saddle on for a longer 65 mile ride, but that was a mistake, so the Randee went back on. I haven't had the opportunity to put a long ride on the Randee yet as the 50+ rides are the real test. The width of the Randee seems to work, but I am still making minor adjustments to the position of the saddle.


Looking back, I probably should of picked up a San Remo as well.

So, I'm guessing the old saying "rough as a cob" doesn't apply here

Post in the facilitator thread. For those prices, double shipping ain't bad...
