Recently done the same but I did have a nice set prior to that. Problem was I used it to cut anything, spokes, cables, screws etc and totally thrashed them. The new set will be treated with a little more respect!

Got a nice new saddle from the lbs .Concept coyote pro.Leather and kevlar.
And only a fiver :D can just make out the faded price ticket of £24.99.
Date on the bottom is Sep 2003 so its been in there for a bit probably why they were happy to be rid off.
A bit more padding for my old boney arse :lol:
