I’m after a new saddle, charge, fabric, that kind of thing. Then I see these 5.99 jobs on eBay and think “any good?” It’s just a saddle after all, how much difference can there be? Anyone tried them and died?
Weird things saddles. My Giant road bike came with something that looks like a Selle Italia copy. As far as I could work out was basically the same shape and size as the SLR I normally ride but I found it unusable and swapped it for a Selle SLR after a couple of rides.
I got one last year after being fed up with squeaky expensive saddles on my fatty. It’s absolutely fine so far, no complaints. No squeaks, comfy enough. I guess it will always be a bit of pot luck with saddles.
