As good as it used to be??
Been running specialized BG saddles on my other bikes and to be honest impressed, but on the new hardtail really don’t want to splash too much cash, i remember having a charge spoon which was spot on in the past, still a comfy saddle or is anything out there better for the price point.
Currently have a BG Henge 143 on both road bike and Speshi Camber.Posted 3 years agodirtbiker100Member
Hmmm I’m the opposite of people in this thread it seems.Posted 3 years ago
Bought a Ti Scoop, bent it on the very first crash I had, wasn’t as comfy as I thought the spoon is, looks silly with its droopy nose.
And I much prefer the new grippier spoon covering, hate sliding around on my saddle.rocketmanMember
Got a black/green dimpled Spoon from Leisure Lakes last year and more recently a marbled black/red model I think the newer saddle is just aaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhh….mmmmmmmm
Also have a Scoop and while it looks very ‘now’ I don’t think it is quite as comfortable as the Spoon although the difference is marginalPosted 3 years agobutcherMember
But the big question is
DO THEY STILL SQUEEK?
My spoon drives me mad with this, sometimes have to stop mid ride to oil it. Oiling a saddle is just wrong.
I definitely have some squeaking around the spoon area. Haven;t investigated to see if it is the seat, seatpost, or something else, but it’s fairly prominent!Posted 3 years agoSTATOMember
I put the grippy spoon on my cross bike so its been through a load of mud and abuse, it still looks good so wear isnt an issue with it but the grippyness was a pain. I tend to slide forward/back on the saddle rather than lift and move and it kept snagging my shorts, to the point that it was pulling them out of place. The old one when covered in mud was pretty slippy, but then most saddles are so its expected.Posted 3 years ago
