hi there,

I´m going to purchase a Selle Italia TURBO saddle for my fixed gear commuting bike. I saw in planet bikes shop that it's available in two different rails, Fec Alloy or Cromo. Does anybody know the difference? what colour is each one? which one should I buy? which one is better and why? anyone has pictures? thanks a lot in advance.

I thought Fec was ferrous carbon = steel type alloy.........weaker than Chrome Molybdenum but not so much you would notice on a saddle.
