True, all those guys comparing it to a brooks saddle were completely clueless. Brooks, as small a company as they are, have been in the saddle making game for years and have plenty of expertise at making saddles for road bikes.

This guy is obviously new to it, had a go, made something a bit different and got slated for it. Harsh

I think it's pretty damn clean. I'd get one but I'm always falling and that saddle would last a week with me.

damn, wtf was going on that page?

the saddle is sweet. gives me a bunch of ideas.

easy tip: you can do this with almost any fabric and liquid nails or something similar (thinly spread of course).

It's from a street fashion blog, not a bike site so the commentors are mostly angry hipsters who don't understand you might want something other than a brooks on your bike.

And there is a hefty thread on the pinkbike forum full of kids who've turned their saddles into tatty bandana covered horrors. Bear in mind that most fabric will tear and stain far more than your normal saddle covering.

Wouldn't trust him he's from Black, people from Black can't be trusted.

On a different note I am getting a Chromag Trailmaster LTD which is supposed to be a super awesome leather saddle.
