Sella Italia Flite saddle(9 posts)

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 ?

Thanks

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.

Have you seen the Selle Italia SLR "Snakeskin Print"? Pretty horrific.

Here's a jersey to go with it to make things really busy...

The worst saddle graphics came stock with my Bianchi EV2, Marco Pantani's face embroidered on my seat! YIKES! How would you like to have your face on saddles under peoples a$$es worldwide?
