any of you guys using this saddle? isn't this the same as the one that Lance's been using? just wondering how you like it.

Hardest damn saddle I ever sat on...and I've sat on quite a few. Of course, you may like it just that it IS FIRM...make that HARD. To each their own.

Great saddle used for about 5 years - great padding in the nose and everywhere else. The high rear gives you something to push bad against abit more than other saddles......but in my quest to continue to learn about other saddles I then tried a selle italia flite and found the comfort to be a small percentabe better (for me). The concor was great and worth a shot - especially if you like the idea of the rear edge to push against.

I have them in Ti rails and carbon rails, presently on 4 of my bikes. I just bought one and stashed it for a bike I'm having built but won't see for almost two years. (Brian Baylis has a bit of a backlog!)

I've tried any number of other saddles over the years, but the Concor lite is the one I keep coming back to.
Still use the San Marco Concordzrider

Can't use the lite at all. One of the bigger disappoints in cycling was finding out it wasn't the same saddle with lighter rails.

I bought a pair of them ($15 a piece!! WOW!!) because I hated the WTS seat I was using on my Bridgestone RB-1. I got a Univega ModoVivere that came with another Selle San Marco seat, thought it was just ok, so I found a couple blem'd Concor Lites. Better seat for sure. I have since sold that bike and bought a Fuji Team, and to be honest, the Fuji seat is probably more comfortable! We'll see if it lasts, but at least I still have a pair of Concor lites sitting around... I'll probably put one on my MTB, and keep the other for my Fuji.

I used to ride the Concor and found it to be one of the best seats I ever had, although a little hard - but I was a triathlete and riding in nothing more than a Speedo! :) Ouch!
