|I'm looking for some feedback on the San Marco Rolls Due saddle. I have ridden Rolls saddles since the '80s, and find them very comfortable. The design is now dated, and I'd like to get a Rolls Due as a replacement. Any thoughts on this saddle would be greatly appreciated, especially from those of you who have ridden the original Rolls saddle. |

|I liked the shape of mine but the quality of it was iffy. By year two the leather cover had split at the bottom of the saddle about an 1 from the nose. I still use in on the bike on my fluid trainer. I replaced it with a San Marco Era on my road bike.|

Thanks for the feedback.
One, how does the width of the Due compare to the reg. Rolls and the Era? I tried and Era, but it was too narrow for me.
Also, could the split in the leather have anything to do with living in a dry climate?
Thanks again for your input. It's greatly appreciated

|the Rolls Due is a med./narrow width saddle.the regular Rolls is my favorite saddle and i was not happy with the shape of the Due.if you like a wide saddle like the Rolls you should stay away from the Due.|

|You probably wont like the Due then. One of the reasons I bought the Era was that it had the same profile as the Due.
No I think the split had to due :D with it getting wet then cracking when it dried.
