not a lot, but Ti rails are not as strong as Cro-mo.
i’ve had three charge saddles. the cro-mo one has been retired as the covering is shagged. the two Ti railed one (one spoon and a knife) have met untimely deaths. one snapped and the other has bent after four rides.
i wish Charge made a spoon/knife saddle. the upper of a knife with spoon cro-mo rails.
also snapped a SLR ti railed one a year or so back.
alpin any trouble with creaking? Got a spoon last year and a creak has developed in the seating area, grab the nose of the saddle and push/pull and creak definitley seems to be coming from saddle or post head. Post is a raceface deus which was bought at the same time, got a pretty old deus which is fine so I doubt it’s that, not got my act together to test different saddle/post yet.
Donk, I share your creaking. My Spoon pretty much creaked out of the box. It is one of tonight’s jobs to try and sort it. Most of the stuff I’ve read on the web seems to involve greasing the rails and the seat clamp bolts. Fingers crossed.
Isn’t the charge spoon titanium a slightly different saddle? The shape is the same but am I right in thinking they use leather and it needs more looking after? Love my spoon cromo and for the price you can’t go wrong.
