comfortable, very comfortable... lighter than a gel turbo.for you guys who are searching for the [erfect saddle, i recommend giving this one a try cause it's not too expensive as well.

it looks dated but the shape must be one of those "if it works why change it" kinda things.

it gets better with miles as well.

all those curves match the campy post clamp perfectly. mine has exquisite brass colored rails and rivets. the rivets are very cool looking. now i lust for a ti railed regal. i can't get no satisfaction.
the brass/copper colored one that you have looks betterSpirito di Finocchio

but if ya gotta have Ti ya gotta have Tl

$30,00. but i took it from a pile of left overs at a lbs. it was siting there for 2yrs and nobody wanted. "too old", said the manager.
the embroidered pinarello logo (the old logo, beautifull) also put people off..
there's all the selle italia around here and new san marco . some old san marco rolls if you try really hard but regals... nyet.

the shell made of, plastic? And does it flex like a Brooks does?

i don't know if it's plastic or nylon but it flexes well. the saddle isolates a lot of road harshness. i ride on cobblestones and i can sit and pedal on the regal while i can't do it on the turbomatic. the saddle molds to your @ss. it's different.
i never rode on a brooks...
i'll second that!JS Haiku Shop

first ride on my regal (not Ti) yesterday, ~32 miles. it's been on the bianchi for a month, but the bianchi's been down with shifter problems. ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh i like it! went from specialized body geom comp; the difference is like going from a cushy couch to a plywood bench, but the bench sure fits my arse! in actuality, i think it's closer to my sit bones, but who knows. it does look pretty snazzy,...$40 including shipping from sdeals.com.
