... a nice seat, picked up at a flea market, but it has an embroidered Schwinn Quality logo on it, and I'm afraid to put it on for any purpose but pure show. I'm sure it is rare.
where did you ever get that seat?maurizio

Is Fondriest in bed with Sella Italia making these seats?
I wouldn't mind a Fizik like that for my Fondriest P4.

where else but e bay. They make 2 of them, one is the monumental,
this one is the sat fly. Hence the fighter jets, they both were
made for the actual bikes. Check the italian web site for
Fondriest and look at sat finish.


There was one monumental seat on e bay a few weeks ago,
$100 winning bid, I think I got lucky with $65.
Keep looking at e bay, it is the only place I have seen them,
other than at interbike photos and those are on the bike.
I can't even find these seats on the manufactures web site.


See the pic from last years interbike, the front bike is the
monumental and the back one is the fly, with the monumental seat.
The seat I have is the fly.

I tell you fondriest is the bike to have!

Ya know, some people can complain about anything....

Okay, well actually that was the first thing I noticed too - not sure if it's the way the light is hitting the bike, or if it's got something to do with the paint, or if those welds are really as unattractive as they appear.. And being a former welder, I love seeing good welds on a bike but there's something not quite right about this. Hmmm.....
