Was just thinking that the only saddles that get close are the ritchey logics :D

and with the straight forks too. How do you find it rides with P2's...?


absolutely spot on

they compliment the back end very well, stiff in the directions you want them stiff and bendy in the directions you want them bendy, if you get what i mean...

I was lucky then i bought it that the previous owner was using it with P2's other wise i would have had to rob a pair off another bike as the only other rigid forks i will let near my bikes are pace, i did pop a set of RC30s on the bonty for a week or so but they didn't quite look right so i put the colour matched P2s back on.

Keep the pics coming, i've got some more i'll upload at some point too!

I've a set of Pace RC-30s which I've used for ages with my frame. I think they look good together, and although I'm currently using suspension I've kept the forks as I'm sure at some point I'll revert to unsprung. I've also got a set of straight bladed Bontrager forks with vertical dropouts, but they're missing brake bosses and I've never got around to sourcing any. Oh yes, and a set of old Judy XCs which I used to race on, these don't raise the front of the bike as much as the SIDs on there at the moment, and look better in many ways, but I don't think they work as well.

Didn't know that...the Cr San Marco is only 4 grams heavier than the Ti and still lighter than the Velo Ti! I always thought the Velo is a little more low profile than the San Marco.

I have a shell only San Marco Ti, let me get its weight and we can start a saddle weights thread. :D

I got a San Marco Ti on mine, and had a perforated Velo Ti just like yours but sold it. I have never weighed them so i have no idea which one is lighter.



But I do :wink:

Bonty Selle San Marco Ti weighs 210 gr.
Bonty Selle San Marco Cr weighs 214 gr.
Bonty Velo Ti weighs 224 gr.

My Bonty:

I finally had it set up with a black Syncros post and the magic ss ratio of 34:16 which was a bit high.... Then i sold it and i've regretted it since. :roll: It used to belong to Gil_m

I've also got the Bonty/Chris King hubs on the P20, the rims have long since died, but have been rebuilt with crossland ceramics.

It was done by Paul Donoghue (?sp), which means it was more than likely done by Kev Winter, who has worked for Paul. Kev's work is superb. Kev did Dr S' Fat chance disc mount
