Probably Time for a New Saddle

27 Jul 2007 at 19:28 Filed Under:
WTB Rocket V Stealth

10,000+ miles, 5+ years, probably time for a new saddle?

There's plenty of life left in that :)

You're probably right, however it keeps putting holes in my shorts!

Blimey and I thought WTB saddles had a reputation for not lasting.

Does this get the Matt thumbs up then?

Not really,
too much sitching, which pulls apart as the material shrinks when it drys after being wet, and to be completely honest it's died mostly in the last 12 months.

Ill probably investigate Specialized next, their gloves, helmets and shoes impress me.

The On-One Big Nose might be worth a look. Cheap and comfortable.

Ugly, probably heavy.
I've almost decided on a specialized, infact I'd have ordered one by now but I'm trying not to spend any money on things at the moment, so I'll use one of the spare saddles I have.
