Cannondale/Selle Italia mystery(4 posts)

Cannondale/Selle Italia mysteryZenith

I just bought a 2003 Cannondale R500 Feminine. I realized that the saddle on mine doesn't match the one on their Web site. This one is leather with gel areas and fabric on the sides with C'dale logo. There is also a "LDY" in printed on the side of the nose. I was checking out the Selle Italia Web site and saw a ladies saddle with the same "LDY". Is it possible that Selle Italia made the saddles for Cannondale and I actually have a Selle Italia on my bike?

Selle Italia has been making the Cannondale in-house Coda-branded saddles for many years.

I was looking at my old "Coda" saddle over the winter, and saw the Selle Italia logo on the shell. I had thought it was just some cheap part that Cannondale had subcontracted out. I then read somewhere online that Selle Italia is the supplier for the Coda seats.
