|I have one of the Flite saddles with the oval sewn-on labels on left/right of saddle rear. I been starting to notice a wear pattern on cycling shorts around the contact area with the labels. My concern as I continue to use the saddle that it will prematurely wear the shorts out.
Has anyone had problems similar to this ? Any solution ?

|You probably know the answer, fabric on fabric= mo money, mo money spent on shorts and a new saddle|

|I've got about 1500 miles on the same saddle. Not wear spots yet. I must have a different butt. BUT, it could be a conspiracy. Have you noticed all of the saddle seams, patches, and embroidered graphics over the last 3 years? And it's the "traditional" italian companies that have been some of the worst offenders. Hmmmmm.
My vote for the worst graphic on a saddle - the "Buzz Off" embroidery on the Terry Fly.
