I raced with this particular saddle in the 80's until I had a bad fall and tore it too Ribbons. When I tried to get another one I had no luck as they had been discontinued. Much to my surprise I found they had been making them again so promptly bought one. I had my first ride on it Today about 40 Miles and it was like I remember very comfortable and still fits well, it doesn't feel like I haven't sat on one in over 25 Years or so. Good quality and well made. It might not suit everyone but it definitely works for me. The most pleasant surprise is that it's cheaper now than when I bought my first one in the 80's.
My old Turbo gave me 25 years of life and hopefully this one will too. It looks identical to the original and after 60 miles of riding feels just as comfy as the original.
Great price and fast shipping from Merlin. It was a lot better deal than I could get on ebay.
