Seat Swap(18 posts)

Since we have so many posters on this board searching for info on the right seat, what if we (posters) had a seat swap with the individuals negotiating their own terms of the deal. It is just a thought and no I am not volunteering to be the clearing house for deals. I for one have a 1 season old Terry Fly that I won't be using and am looking to swap it for a San Marco Regal (rivets, smooth leather) or a Brooks Pro of similar vintage. Just thinking we could all use to trade out a few seats for something more usable. Sort of just like I did here, got a Terry Fly looking for a Regal or Pro.
your idea has its merits....Spirito di Finocchio

but im not sure if it will take off. i hope for you it does

but if not try google groups and post a want to trade listing.... you might have more success there and if not its a good a place as any to sell what you have but add something obvious to your email adress and point it out in the body of the ad for others to remove otherwise you will be a victim of spam emails.

sdeals has the best prices i have seen for the regal and also a few of the brooks saddles. it might be wise to buy a few tires or such things to make it worthwhile shipping wise.

i thought the classifieds here had a wanted section but i cant find it.

but then again maybe there is someone out there looking for a terry and has a regal or brooks they dont want anymore.
Good idea,Crankist

It's not the postal version is it? I assume it's black, Ti and no rips or anything? The Flite is in perfect condition for a ridden saddle.

Tell me, why are you not into the Era?

I don't hate or care for Flites either way, but the yellow is the problem. Came on a bike with a WAY yellow scheme. I've since toned down the look of the steed and am left with the saddle. I'd run it on my messenger since pretty means sh!t there, but I run cheapos on that and just can't justify ruining such a saddle.

My idea also stems from the fact that I ...Lone Gunman

do not want to sink more money into a seat when I have one to trade and the other guy benefits. Also completely unfamiliar with goggle and ebay auctions, just does not interest me that much, so I have never shopped the auctions at all.
I'll do a Max flite trans am for a prolink gel...g-money

Max flight is black... Black prolink would be nice but not nec. Scratsching on the rails form installation.

I have a 2001 Bontrager RaceLite Gel, black with silver embroidery and Ti rails. Would like to swap for a blue Flite Ti Gel or could sell it directly.

Thanks!

a carbon shell and carbon rail. $180 for qa saddle! YOWZA

got a orginal Terry Liberator I'd part withColnagoFE

It's nearly new...just doesn't agree with my butt--preferably in exchange for a standard Selle Italia Flite or equivalent in decent shape.
I love the idea. Stem swap too.Alex-in-Evanston

I've got a Speicalized body geometry to get rid of (who doesn't?), an SI flite, and a WTB laser V.

Stems to dump - 100cm Mutant (black), 3TT quill piste 100cm.

Used off and on for about two seasons, broken in and well cared for. Will swap for an all black San Marcos Era. the Brooks couldn't dial in with the geometry of my Klein. I have a Postal Team Era, but would prefer a black one. I still have the orignal box the Brooks came in....
