I have one of those Specialized 'ergonomic' nerve saving saddles. I actually don't like the saddle for regular road riding. But, I like it on my Fixie because it's comfortable with all the bouncing that comes with descending.

And, it was in my parts bin which is the best place to find Fixie accessories.

Not my favorite, but at least it doesn't have stitching and works well for my narrow bum. I had it sitting around, so I used it to keep the budget down. I don't like it as much as the San Marco Era, but it still works after 10 years. I'd like to replace it with a Rolls, which suits the frame's style better, and I know it's comfy.

from way back in the parts box! I think I last used it around 1989. Rubbed in some leather conditioner to spruce it up. Doesn't look too bad, and feels o.k. after years of riding a flite and era. I think it's good to get new life out of an old part. Also helps defend my pack rat habits to my wife!

I loved it and bought a couple on a sell out and have a total of three.

Swift for me, Finesse for Miss M.

Amazingly comfortable.
