Having been a member of the forum for about a week now i notice lots of bike pics with the Selle Italia Flite saddles fitted...is this the saddle of choice for the Retro MTB connosieur? I've got one fitted to my 91 Apex and have to say it's the kindest thing to sit on, unlike my Arione Wingflex on my roadbike - now that feels like a razor blade in comparison..!
:oops:

so my question is....what is the most popular saddle amongst us?

That's 2 of us then - mine used to be on my road bike (years ago) but it was that comfy it just had to migrate onto the APEX...! ```````````````````````````````

It´s the Flite for sure. I have him in all my bikes, in orange, grey, black, and in special editions (Tinker Juarez, Pantani, Race Face Edition, etc)

Maybe the best of all times.
